Small-scale Innovations
with Huge Green Potential

Find out how nanomaterials can help us generate more energy with less environmental impact.

Join us for lunch on Wednesday, April 10 to hear from Professor Steven J. Thorpe (MMS 8T0, MASc 8T2, PhD 8T5) whose nanomaterials research enables more efficient energy conversion processes in devices such as electrolysers, energy storage media and fuel cells. These new materials are poised to have major impacts on power generation utilities, the automotive sector and society at large. 

  Steven Thorpe

Professor Thorpe joined the U of T Engineering faculty in 1987 and currently serves at the associate chair of graduate studies for the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. He has significant experience in the commercial sector and has previously served as a senior scientist with The Electrolyser Corporation Ltd. and as vice-president of technology at Stuart Energy Systems Corporation.  He has won numerous awards including the Faculty Teaching Award and the Academics in Industry Award from OCMR.
