Saskatchewan's established oil and gas industry is crucial for diversifying the energy sector and providing solutions that work for the economy and the environment. With over 30 years of industry knowledge and expertise, SRC is supporting the province as it turns its attention towards hydrogen.
For over 75 years, the Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC) has focused on research and technology demonstration that directly affects the welfare of the province — helping find solutions for the agricultural, mining, environmental and energy industries.
SRC has a long history of working in energy efficiency and renewables, and that work continues today. Meet Ryan Jansen, Team Lead, Integrated Energy Systems at SRC who leads much of SRC's work in renewables technology, as well as smart and microgrids—all with an eye on helping industry improve efficiencies.
Did you know that lighting accounts for about one-third of an average home’s energy use? With so many different options for light bulbs on the market, it's hard to know which one is the best. We share seven reasons why people should consider switching to LEDs, the fastest growing tech in this sector.
The Saskatchewan Conservation House was a demonstration house built to test energy-efficient methods. Four more energy-efficient demonstration homes based on SRC’s research and expertise were later constructed. Learn about the innovative features of these homes that influenced energy-efficient housing across the world.
As a result of the energy crisis in the 1970s, Saskatchewan residents were looking for ways to reduce energy costs for their homes. Learn about the development of an energy conservation demonstration home, the Saskatchewan Conservation House, which applied cost-effective methods for reducing energy use for homeowners.
The Factor 9 Home was a demonstration project by SRC of a single family residence located in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. The home features very high levels of energy efficiency and environmental...
