UW Energy Resources Council, Advanced Conversion Technologies Task Force to Meet
August 1, 2013 — The University of Wyoming Energy Resources Council and Advanced Conversion Technologies Task Force will meet to consider a variety of topics Friday, Aug. 23, in the BP Collaboration Center at UW's Energy Innovation Center.
The council will meet at 8 a.m. as the Advanced Conversion Technologies Task Force (ACTTF) to hear final presentations from Ben Phillips of Emery Energy and Chris Martin of the Energy and Environmental Research Center. It also will consider, among other topics, the future of the Clean Coal Task Force account after current funds expire.
After lunch, the group will reconvene as the Energy Resources Council to meet with UW President Robert Sternberg, who serves as an ex-officio member of the council. The group will hear division updates and the status of plans for the High Bay Facility, among other topics.
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 UW School of Energy Resources (SER) on priorities for research and outreach. The ACTTF consists of the voting members of the Energy Resources Council; it awards funds for advanced conversion research.
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.
