Center for Photoconversion & Catalysis

CPAC

Renewable energy is becoming an important part of the global energy portfolio. There is also an urgent need to find less expensive ways to utilize not only solar energy, but also conventional and alternative fuels via improved catalysis. The mission of the Center for Photoconversion and Catalysis (CPAC) is to promote and support photoconversion and catalysis research at the University of Wyoming as well as to create and support educational opportunities with renewable energy-related content. CPAC-affiliated faculty are a resource to provide information for the public and for public officials with regard to solar energy, fuel conversion, and fuel cell technologies.
