David Layzell

Director of the Canadian Energy Systems Analysis Research (CESAR) Initiative
University of Calgary

David Layzell studies energy systems, with a particular focus on understanding and identifying strategies for transforming Canadian energy systems towards sustainability.

From 2008 to 2012, he was the Executive Director of the Institute for Sustainable Energy, Environment and Economy (ISEEE), a cross-Faculty, graduate research and training institute at the University of Calgary.

Throughout his career, David Layzell has been committed to the use of multi- and inter-disciplinary approaches to understand and address complex, real-world problems. He sees the energy and environmental issues that the world now faces as an example of a challenge that does not respect disciplinary or sector boundaries. By developing novel tools for the analysis and visualization of energy systems, Layzell works to create a forum where various disciplines and industry sectors can work together to find cost-effective solutions to the environmental challenges associated with energy production and use.
