Energy Research

State-of-the-art research is a requirement for preserving and growing the value of Wyoming's energy resources while protecting the state's environmental treasures.  UW's ability to seek and obtain outside funding is greatly enhanced by the state's commitment to provide competitively-awarded matching funds.

Centers of Excellence

The School of Energy Resources (SER) oversees several research Centers of Excellence, which facilitate interdisciplinary research in program areas that are critical to advancing the state of the art in energy technology and policy.

Current Funding Opportunities

The School of Energy Resources and the eight Centers of Excellence it oversees advertise several research opportunities each year.  Current funding opportunities and Requests for Proposals are posted to the SER Research webpages.

Research Funding Programs

SER administers several funding programs which provide UW faculty a critical competitive advantage in capturing external funding for new research proposals in energy areas.  These highly leveraged funds provide UW with excellent opportunities and facilities to compete in a broad spectrum of research endeavors across energy sectors important to the state - natural gas, petroleum, coal, uranium, wind, and solar.
