Joule Bergerson is an associate professor in the UCalgary's Schulich School of Engineering, a Canada Research Chair in Energy Technology Assessment, and a member of the faculty’s Centre for Environmental Engineering Research and Education. Her goal is to provide methods and tools that will allow a better understanding of life-cycle assessment and systems modeling for new technologies, ensuring energy production is maximized while keeping the climate and costs in mind. Joule is leading the technology assessment and co-ordination theme, one of several areas of research being funded through a $75-million grant from the federal Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF). Bergerson’s research team is helping prioritize research and development activities by identifying technologies – or optimal combinations of technologies – that would provide particularly large life cycle benefits.
