Renewable energy is the future. Climate change, limited fossil fuel reserves, and pollution all point to the limitations of reliance on traditional energy sources. Clean energy technologies that are environmentally sustainable will improve public health and can create jobs using inexhaustible sources.
The Queen’s Centre for Energy and Power Electronics Research (ePOWER) brings together academic and industrial partners to develop a broad range of applications and expertise in the field of power electronics. Researchers are advancing knowledge in alternative energy, power transmission, and power consumption. Fundamental and applied research is fuelling development of new energy-efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly power electronic technologies.
ePOWER laboratory facilities are state-of-the-art, capable of conducting research and building experimental prototypes from power-integrated circuits to power electronics systems. Work conducted at ePOWER is playing a significant role in conserving energy and protecting the environment.
