Dr. Liang appointed a member of an expert panel on innovative ICT uses for greening Canada
The Council of Canadian Academies has established a Panel of Experts to conduct an evidence-based assessment of the potential for new and innovative uses of information and communication technologies (ICTs) for Greening Canada. Dr. Steve Liang is appointed a member of the expert panel.
The Expert Panel was constituted upon a formal request by the Minister of the Environment to the Council of Canadian Academies. The Federal Government has recognised there is a significant untapped and undefined potential for energy savings through ICT-enabled efficiency measures and technology improvements. This assessment, once complete, will provide an in-depth and balanced report on the potential for new and innovative uses of ICTs to contribute to a greener Canada. The Panel is chaired by David Miller, former Toronto Mayor. A list of the panel members can be found at http://www.scienceadvice.ca/en/assessments/in-progress/greening-canada/e...
