Energy storage is the key to replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy. Join Matthew Labbe, a PhD student from the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering, as he explores the development of catalysts to improve the energy efficiency of zinc-air batteries, one of the most promising candidates for grid-scale energy storage.

Matthew Labbe is a PhD student in both Dr. Douglas G. Ivey’s and Dr. Ken Cadien’s Lab in the Faculty of Engineering. The research falls under the category: Transport, storage, and access. You can find more information at his research page:

Future Energy Systems is a $75 million research program at the University of Alberta, funded by the Canada First Research Excellence Fund. More than 130 researchers, 600 graduate students, post docs and other highly qualified personnel in nine faculties are studying the energy transition in over 90 different projects. Our researchers seek to develop energy technologies of the future, improve today’s energy technologies, and understand the transition between the two. We are also studying the effects of energy transition on society, the economy, and the environment.

Broadly speaking, we can simplify this complex system into four broad categories:
-Energy generation, harvesting, and production
-Transport, storage, and access
-Use, impact, and regulation
-Monitoring, management, and mitigation
Through our Energy in a Flash Lightning Research Speaker Series, we will explore all four of these categories, and see how broad and diverse our energy systems truly are.

The University of Alberta respectfully acknowledges that we are located on Treaty 6 territory, a traditional gathering place for diverse Indigenous peoples including the Cree, Blackfoot, Metis, Nakota Sioux, Iroquois, Dene, Ojibway/ Saulteaux/Anishinaabe, Inuit, and many others whose histories, languages, and cultures continue to influence our vibrant community.
