Energy Resources Council to Meet Aug. 27
August 19, 2010 — Members of the University Of Wyoming School Of Energy Resources Energy Resource Council will meet from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. and meet as the Clean Coal Task Force from 2-3:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 27, at the UW Hilton Garden Inn Conference Center.
The Energy Resource Council (ERC), comprised of legislators and 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 Carbon Management Institute by Ron Surdam and Shanna Dahl and a report from Dean Robert Ettema on the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
The 2007 Wyoming State Legislature created the Clean Coal 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.
