UW Energy Resources Council, Advanced Conversion Technologies Task Force to Meet
August 7, 2012 — Members of the University of Wyoming Energy Resources Council (ERC) and the Advanced Conversion Technologies Task Force (ACTTF) will meet Friday, Aug. 24, at the UW Conference Center at the Hilton Garden Inn.
Among the agenda items for the ERC are updates on the status of strategy implementation for the UW School of Energy Resources, fundraising, Abandoned Mine Land funds and the Energy Innovation Center.
Following the ERC meeting, the council will reconvene as the ACTTF to hear an update on economic and technical feasibility studies. It also will discuss advanced conversion project legislation and the Clean Coal Tech Fund Symposium and awards from the Clean Coal Technology Fund.
The ERC, made up 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 on priorities for research and outreach. In 2012, the Legislature changed the name of the Clean Coal Task Force to the Advanced Conversion Technologies Task Force, effective July 1.
The UW School of Energy Resources 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.
