A Feature on SFU Cleantech in the Plaza

SFU Cleantech in the Plaza is a new addition to this year’s event and promises to be a great centre of entertainment for all event attendees. There will be over twenty-five displays from various clean technology initiatives and industry members including, SFU student & alumni projects, companies like Powertech and BC Hydro, the City of Surrey, and the Washington Cleantech Alliance. Ballard Power Systems will also be present at the event with their hydrogen fuel cell bus on site. These busses are extremely new to the streets and this may be your only chance to get an interactive tour of the vehicle itself!

These projects and displays will provide a great diversity of technology all with the central theme of sustainability and cleantech. The tech ranges from efficient lighting, green agriculture, safe cleaning products, and new wave power generation to the clean energy vehicles of tomorrow and software that will streamline your business practices and everyday life. All of these booths and attractions will offer you a chance to learn and interact with their technology.  If you are a car fiend or just interested on saving some money on gas, Cleantech in the Plaza has just the thing for you.


Do you like driving? How about getting your hands on and testing out some of the newest clean energy vehicles the road has to offer? Brian Jessel is providing a couple of their BMW iSeries vehicles for your viewing pleasure, but there will also be Hyundai’s new hydrogen fuel cell Tucson on site for you to take around the neighbourhood and experience Downtown Surrey. This is opportunity is exclusive to Cleantech in the Plaza and will have limited registration. Make sure you get to the event early and get your name down on the list!

Finally, if you are looking for a place to grab lunch or an early dinner, there will be several food trucks in the plaza as well supplying food that you will not be able to resist. Grab some grub and explore what SFU Cleantech in the Plaza has to offer.
