Sustainable energy research and education at the University of Calgary received a quarter-billion dollar boost from the provincial government yesterday.





Alberta Premier Ed Stelmach announced $260 million in funding for the U of C’s Institute for Sustainable Energy, Environment and Economy (ISEEE), that will see a world-class facility built and 1,000 new student spaces opened up.





The new building will provide an expansion for innovative teaching and research opportunities in the energy and environment-related programs at the university.





“Alberta’s energy industry, our economy and our environment are closely linked. Together they are a key to a prosperous, sustainable future,” Stelmach said.





“Studying these elements together rather than in isolation will have tremendous benefits to our province.”
