Jump starting energy innovation

As the coordinating institution for energy research, the WVU Institute for Sustainability and Energy works with stakeholders within the university, across the state and region, and globally to help stimulate energy and environmental economic development in West Virginia.  

In 2023, the Energy Institute changed its name in recognition of the focus and important role it has played in WVU's long-standing commitment to sustainable development and energy and environmental research.

We are dedicated to:

  • securing our nation’s energy needs, and 
  • protecting our environment
