- About UW
The School of Energy Resources (SER) provides funding for the Centers of Excellences (COE) to be established as mechanisms to bring together faculty and graduate students from multiple disciplines to develop important energy research programs. With SER funding, the COE are expected to capture external funds and attain financial independence within a few years. COE evolve with time; new groups may form to work on emerging challenges, while some centers may disband as their programs are completed.
CENTER FOR ECONOMIC GEOLOGY RESEARCH
The Center for Economic Geology Research (CEGR) engages in the research and development necessary to keep Wyoming at the cutting edge of geological CO2 storage.
CENTER FOR ENERGY REGULATION & POLICY ANALYSIS
The Center for Energy Regulation and Policy Analysis (CERPA) conducts interdisciplinary energy regulation and policies analyses for the economic benefit of Wyoming.
CENTER FOR CARBON CAPTURE AND CONVERSION
The Center for Carbon Capture and Development (CCCC) is focused on supporting the future of Wyoming coal and creating economic development & diversification opportunities.
HYDROGEN ENERGY RESEARCH CENTER
The Hydrogen Energy Research Center (H2ERC) will lead applied research to identify and quantify the relative competitive advantages of Wyoming in an emerging hydrogen economy.
SHELL 3D VISUALIZATION CENTER
The Shell 3D Visualization Center (3D Viz) enables UW to develop a community of innovative visualization users seeking to enhance their teaching, research, and entrepreneurial activity.
NUCLEAR ENERGY RESEARCH CENTER
The Nuclear Energy Research Center (NERC) is focused on interdisciplinary nuclear-energy capacity building across the UW community, and cultivating new resources in nuclear research.
CENTER FOR AIR QUALITY
The School of Energy Resources’ Center for Air Quality (CAQ) is involved in research concerning emissions from oil and gas exploration and production activities, and methane monitoring and mapping technology.
WIND ENERGY RESEARCH CENTER
The Wind Energy Research Center (WERC) is a collaboration with the College of Engineering and Applied Science dedicated to improving wind energy technology and its applications in Wyoming.
CENTER FOR PRODUCED WATER MANAGEMENT
The Center for Excellence in Produced Water Management provides innovative science and engineering research for application in energy industries that are economical and sustainable.
CENTER FOR BIOGENIC GAS RESEARCH
The Center for Biogenic Natural Gas Research (CBNG) develops and commercializes technologies to enhance the production of renewable, clean-burning natural gas using indigenous microorganisms.
The Wyoming Integrated Test Center (ITC) at Dry Fork Station in Gillette, Wyo. provides space for researchers to test Carbon Capture, Utilization and Sequestration (CCUS) technologies using actual coal based flue gas.
Established by the Wyoming Legislature in 2004, the mission of the Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute (EORI) is to facilitate a meaningful and measurable increase in recoverable oil and gas in Wyoming that may otherwise not be realized. LEARN MORE >>>
The Bayesian Learning Consortium is an industry-sponsored research consortium focusing on advanced quantitative methods for subsurface characterization.
The goal of the consortium is to develop innovative quantitative methods to improve the characterization of subsurface reservoirs for hydrocarbon exploration and carbon dioxide sequestration and quantify the uncertainty in the numerical models.
