Emerging Areas

Our Emerging Areas focuses on key research and development (R&D) topics that are integral to new energy systems and help provide key information for policy and regulation development.

Our areas of focus

CanmetENERGY Devon’s emerging R&D areas focus on topics related to energy resource development. We seek to focus on:

  • Renewable energy storage: improving the utility of renewable, yet intermittent, energy resources through the development of (electro)chemical energy storage systems;
  • Critical minerals: evaluating the extraction of critical minerals, including lithium from natural brines, which will support the clean energy sector;
  • Carbon capture and utilization (CCU): supporting the development and testing of carbon capture and utilization technologies;
  • Internet of things (IoT): using inexpensive IoT technologies to develop and assess impacts related to natural resource development and to promote citizen science in collaboration with NRCan;
  • Indigenous engagement: supporting Indigenous activities and projects related to CanmetENERGY Devon's core research areas.
