Our goal is to reach the top 10 of energy research universities by investing in energy research faculty, students and programs, and other capabilities we recognize as drivers in renewed vitality, growth and opportunities for the state and Appalachian region.

By serving as a catalytic hub, we:

  • discover and develop transformational pathways for energy research and economic outreach
  • connect WVU energy and environmental researchers, staff and students with strategic partners in education, government and industry through local, state and global engagement
