Developing Innovative Prototypes and Design Methods for Energy and Water Systems

The Water and Energy Research Laboratory (WERL) at the University of Toronto focuses on improving water and energy solutions for the developing and developed world. The work in the research group ranges from analyzing, modelling, designing, and prototyping new water and energy system concepts to developing generalized computer-based tools that can guide the design of energy and water systems. The WERL is based in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering and is directed by Prof. Amy M. Bilton.
