Members of the University of Wyoming School of Energy Resources Energy Resource Council will meet from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday, May 29, in salons F and G at the UW Convention Center inside the Hilton Garden Inn in Laramie.
The Energy Resource Council (ERC), comprised of legislators, representatives from industry, state government and academia, was established by the 2006 Wyoming State Legislature. It is charged with providing direction to UW's School of Energy Resources (SER) on priorities for academics, research and outreach.
Among the agenda items are updates on the recent legislative session, strategic vision update, the new Energy Resource Science Degree Program, current SER activities, and introduction of newly appointed council member, Maha Mahasenan, who is environmental technology manager for Rio Tinto Energy America.
The SER provides undergraduate and graduate education, conducts research on existing and emerging energy resources and disseminates scientific, engineering and economic information to support Wyoming's near- and long-term energy future.
Persons with disabilities requiring special accommodations to attend this meeting should call the SER at (307) 766-2663.
