The next generation of cars: Electrifying solutions for clean energy
With electric vehicles set to become one of the main forms of transportation globally by 2030, Ali Emadi set a goal to develop one of the world’s best university programs in the field of transportation electrification. And he’s achieved it.
Emadi heads the transportation electrification program at the McMaster Automotive Resource Centre (MARC). It’s one of North America’s leading research facilities in electrified vehicles. There, the Canada Research Chair in Transportation Electrification and Smart Mobility is taking electric and hybrid vehicles to the next level in Canada.
He’s working with industry partners and collaborators from fields of engineering, science, and social science to develop technologies that are cost-effective, improve performance and efficiency, and tackle issues facing the automotive industry.
