UW Energy Resources Council to Meet Aug. 22
The University of Wyoming Energy Resources Council (ERC) will meet Friday, Aug. 22, at 8 a.m. in the Energy Innovation Center’s BP Collaboration Center on the UW campus.
Council members will hear updates on the progress of the UW College of Engineering and Applied Science “Tier 1” initiative and the High Bay Research Facility. The council is expected to take action on Nielson energy fellowships, among other topics.
The council will reconvene after lunch as the Advanced Conversion Technologies Task Force (ACTTF) to hear updates about the proposed integrated test center to study the capture, sequestration and management of carbon emissions from a Wyoming coal-fired power plant; and to give feedback on the Aug. 20-21 Clean Coal Technology Fund Research Symposium at UW.
The ERC was established by the Wyoming State Legislature in 2006. Made up of representatives from industry, state government and academia, the council provides direction to UW’s School of Energy Resources 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 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.
