Energy Resources Council


The University of Wyoming Energy Resources Council (ERC) was established by Wyoming statute 21-17-117(e) to guide SER in setting priorities for energy-related academics, research, and outreach. The ERC, consisting of leaders from industry, the legislature and UW, provides direction for responsive, internationally recognized, interdisciplinary energy-related programs that are integral constituents of the university's identity. The School of Energy Resources operating structure and policies are established by the Board of Trustees. 

The ERC contributes a unique business perspective upon the diverse research and workforce demand's of both Wyoming's private and public energy sectors, and is responsible for producing a valuable return on the state's investment in UW's energy programs. 

The ERC consists of thirteen members. Seven members represent diverse sectors of Wyoming's energy industries and are appointed to three-year terms by the governor with confirmation by the Senate. Additional members include one member from the Wyoming Senate (appointed by the President of the Senate), one from the House of Representatives (appointed by the Speaker of the House), and four ex-officio members: a representative of the governor, the President of the University of Wyoming, the Director of the Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources and a member of the University of Wyoming Board of Trustees.
