The Energy & Power Innovation Centre (EPIC) provides expertise and facilities to support Canadian companies with their operational challenges with a particular focus on energy and resource management. EPIC also supports utilities and electrical companies with developing new solutions, as well as training in state-of-the-art facilities.
EPIC is also home to the Energy & Power Technology Access Centre (TAC), a national resource for the Canadian manufacturing and agri-food sector. As a TAC, EPIC helps companies who would like to adopt energy technologies that can reduce operating costs throughout the manufacturing process and/or de-risk the implementation of new technologies.
The cross-functional research team - which includes EPIC applied research staff, dedicated co-op students and Engineering Technology Faculty members- works collaboratively with the Sensor Systems and Internet of Things (IoT) Lab, the Centre for Climate Change Management, the Additive Manufacturing Innovation Centre (AMIC), and the mHealth & eHealth Development and Innovation Centre (MEDIC).
