Senate visits Dalhousie University

The Canadian Standing Senate Committee on Energy, the Environment and Natural Resources met with Dalhousie chemists and physicists to discuss what the low carbon economy of the future could look like.

In an effort to comply with the 2015 Paris Agreement, the Senate Committee spent four days visiting Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. While in Halifax, the Senate discussed low carbon emission technologies such as batteries, solar cells, and solar fuels with Profs. Dahn (Physics and Chemistry), Hill (Physics), and Dasog (Chemistry).
