Let's Partner!

The WVU Institute for Sustainability and Energy Research (WISER) works with faculty, communities, and industry to meet the needs of the state's energy and environmental challenges. We build partnerships that respond to state and federally funded research and economic development requests within the Appalachian region.

As part of WVU's R1 research, our work includes: carbon utilization, alternative and sustainable energy, energy geosciences, environmental stewardship, gas utilization, regional development and energy policy. 

We believe that sustainable energy outcomes are more successful with collaboration. There's power in partnerships. Join us in leading the way.
