Faculty within the CPAC work together to find new ways of generating and utilizing energy - emphasizing conversion of light into both electrical and chemical energy, as well a the closely related catalytic chemistry needed to utilize new and conventional energy forms more cleanly and efficiently.  The resulting knowledge will help minimize energy losses and maximize yields in processes such as biomass conversion, the production of photogenerated fuels, and the conversion of Wyoming's fossil energy sources into cleaner fuels.
