Energy Innovation Center
The University of Wyoming’s Energy Innovation Center (EIC) opened in January 2013 to support the University of Wyoming (UW) and the School of Energy Resources (SER) in achieving the mission of positioning Wyoming as a global leader in energy education, research, and outreach. This state-of-the-art research and collaboration facility, located on the northwest corner of UW’s Laramie campus, includes 27,300 net square feet of highly technical research space, as well as office, classroom, and meeting space. Approximately 12,500 square feet of the EIC is designated for six rapidly reconfigurable, ultramodern laboratory spaces that will play a key role in advancing SER’s strategic areas of concentration.
The design and construction of the $25.4 million EIC was made possible through private donations and State of Wyoming matching funds. Encana provided the largest private donation for the building with a $5 million commitment in 2007 that was matched by the state. Generous private donations were also given by BP, Shell, Peabody Energy, Arch Coal, Marathon Oil, Questar, and ConocoPhillips.
As one of the most advanced research facilities at the university, the EIC will provide students, researchers, and academic professionals the opportunity to actively engage in, observe, and support advancements in sustainable energy technologies.
