Join us in congratulating Yue Zhang of the University of British Columbia–Okanagan, recipient of the 2023 ECS Canada Section Student Award!

ECS Canada Section Student Award

The award recognizes promising young engineers and scientists in the field of electrochemical power sources in Canada. Recipients are students pursuing PhDs at Canadian universities in any area of science or engineering in which electrochemical science and technology and/or solid state science and technology are the central consideration. Through this award, the section encourages recipients to initiate or continue careers in the field.

While society needs to approach or surpass net zero carbon emissions by 2050 if the planet as we know it is to survive, most of the low carbon technologies that we promote (such as electric vehicles) cannot achieve net zero when considered over their whole life cycle. It is, therefore, essential that these important low carbon technologies be augmented by technologies that consume more carbon than they emit over their lifetime. These are best termed “carbon negative technologies.”

This collaborative focus issue between JPhys Energy and Journal of The Electrochemical Society  brings together researchers from the international community to showcase the latest research on carbon negative technologies, fostering the exchange of ideas and addressing global challenges and opportunities.
