Request for Qualifications – Academic Partner – Vehicle Emission Measurement

At Net Zero Atlantic, we're helping Atlantic Canada move toward a more sustainable energy future by producing credible and objective data to inform sound energy policies and decisions. Our focus is on coordinating research and projects that will help to decarbonize our region’s economy, mitigating climate change impacts and moving Atlantic Canada toward net-zero emissions by 2050. Our clients include government and industry representatives who need complete and reliable information to guide thinking and action. We are changing the way energy research is delivered. We’re in the business of facilitating collaborative, made-to-order research projects that resolve key energy-related questions.

We are currently working on an initiative that aims at demonstrating the commercial viability of hydrogen powered vehicles and equipment. For this project we are seeking an academic partner with experience in measuring, analyzing and reporting on greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles.

Responsibilities of the academic partner will include:

  1. Define a research plan that will evaluate vehicle performance (in terms of greenhouse gas emissions, PM2.5, VOC’s, and air quality) and compare diesel or gasoline-powered vehicles with fuel cell electric vehicles.
  2. Develop and implement a vehicle performance assessment protocol.
  3. Monitor and advise on the collection of vehicle performance data.
  4. Analyze data and report on results periodically.
  5. Assist the larger project team in presenting research findings.
  6. Synthesize results in a final report and make evidence-backed recommendations for possible next steps in the adoption of fuel cell electric vehicles.

Any submission to this request for qualifications should include a description of the respondent’s experience with greenhouse gas emission measurement and analysis, data processing, data visualization, and report writing. Applications from individual researchers, research groups, laboratories and academic institutes are encouraged.

Submissions are due Friday, July 22nd, 2022 by 12:00pm ADT.

Net Zero Atlantic is committed to the principles of Employment Equity. We encourage applications from qualified women, visible minorities, Indigenous peoples, people identifying at LGBTQ2SI, and people with disabilities.  This opportunity is restricted to Canadian citizens, permanent residents, or persons who have been granted Refugee status in Canada.
