Research Funding and Administration

School of Energy Resources

Research Programs

The School of Energy Resources (SER) administers several funding programs to advance energy research both on and off of the University of Wyoming (UW) campus.  Research funding at SER provides UW faculty with a competitive advantage in capturing external funding for new research related to energy.  SER works to leverage legislatively-appropriated funds to advance research related to energy sectors important to the state - natural gas, petroleum, coal, uranium, wind, and solar. 

Advanced Conversion Technologies Research Program

The Advanced Conversion Technologies Fund - formerly the Clean Coal Technology Fund - was created to stimulate research and development in low-emissions and advanced coal technologies.  Through five separate legislative appropriations, SER has administered over $40 million in cutting edge research on combustion, gasification and chemical conversion, in situ mineral treatment technologies, and gas/coal-to-liquids and gas/coal-to-hydrogen technologies, among other research topics.  The program is guided by the Advanced Conversion Technologies Task Force, established by legislation as stewards of the appropriations.
