Energy Resource Council to Meet Friday
Members of the University of Wyoming School of Energy Resources (SER) Energy Resource Council (ERC) will hold their regularly-scheduled quarterly meeting Friday, June 18 from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Aspen Room of the Denver Airport Marriott Courtyard.
The ERC, comprised of representatives from industry, state government and academia, was established by the 2006 Wyoming State Legislature. It provides direction to the School of Energy Resources (SER) on priorities for research and outreach.
Among the agenda items are legislative and fundraising updates, a discussion on future events and initiatives and a status report on construction of the ERC building.
The council will convene at 1 p.m. as the Clean Coal Task Force. The 2007 Wyoming State Legislature enacted House Bill 301 creating the task force, which consists of ERC members. The task force reviews and evaluates methods to enhance research into clean coal technologies. The task force is staffed by Gov. Dave Freudenthal's office, with support from the SER.
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 contact SER at (307) 766-2663.
