Task force on energy conversion meets in May

— posted May 1, 2013

Members of the University of Wyoming Energy Resources Council (ERC) and the Advanced Conversion Technologies Task Force (ACTTF) will meet at 8 a.m. Friday, May 17, in the BP Collaboration Center of the Energy Innovation Center at 1020 Lewis St. on the UW campus in Laramie.

On the agenda is a report by the Carbon Management Institute on Well No. 1 of the WYCUSP project near Rock Springs. Board members also will hear updates on the Energy Innovation Center and plans for an open house.

Following the ERC meeting, the council will reconvene as the ACTTF to hear status updates on projects and the budget, and review the status of a glass manufacturing study.

The ERC, made up of representatives from industry, state government and academia, was established by the 2006 Wyoming State Legislature. It provides direction to UW’s School of Energy Resources on priorities for research and outreach. The ACTTF consists of the voting members of the ERC; the ACTTF 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.

Persons with disabilities requiring special accommodations to attend this meeting should contact the School of Energy Resources at (307) 766-6851. Information about the School of Energy Resources is available online at www.uwyo.edu/ser.
