Mission, Vision, Goals

The WVU Energy Institute's mission is to promote, coordinate and expand the vital impacts and value of West Virginia’s energy assets and capabilities for the people of West Virginia, the mid-Appalachian region, the nation and world.

By serving as a catalytic hub, continually discovering and developing transformational pathways, connecting WVU energy researchers, programs, facilities, capabilities and students/workforce entrants with the future of energy, we aim to fulfill three strategic goals.

Our ultimate goal is to make WVU a top 10 energy research university by 2025 by investing in energy research programs, students, and other capabilities we recognize as drivers of renewed vitality, growth and opportunity in West Virginia and the Appalachian region.
