Research involves


Designing innovative, sustainable energy-conversion systems for fuel cells, refrigeration systems and micro-electronics.

Research relevance


This research will lead to more sustainable and energy-efficient fuel cells, batteries and refrigeration systems.

Developing the Next Generation of Alternative Energy


A number of industries are seeking sustainable and green energy. Developing the technology that can provide that energy, however, requires innovative research.

Some of that innovative research is being delivered by Dr. Majid Bahrami, Canada Research Chair in Alternative Energy Conversion Systems. Bahrami is developing energy-efficient tools and systems needed to design innovative and sustainable energy conversion systems.

Bahrami and his team are exploring the development of everything from more sustainable and energy-efficient fuel cells, to high-power, polymer, lithium-ion batteries with a number of uses.

Bahrami’s research into the characterization of emerging “functional” materials, the design and prototyping of energy-efficient systems—and their integration—will help reduce the environmental impacts of a number of industries. including the automotive, manufacturing, micro-electronics and food sectors.
