UBC is proud to be a climate leader, providing innovative climate solutions. This exciting project, which includes BC’s first-ever #hydrogen refuelling station, will use UBC’s campus as a living lab to transform a city block into a smart energy district. https://bit.ly/3tm5Ld7

Looking forward to Dr Angela Rout’s blog about “cities, nature, technology, smart cities, data, sustainable urban design, forestry, big data, remote sensing… and the kitchen sink.”
