Program Development and Research Services

    Our mission is to assist WVU faculty with strategic planning and proposal development of large-scale, energy and environmental, research and outreach programs. We help principal investigators (PIs) pursue funding opportunities and identify experts within WVU and at other organizations to create robust teams to address complex problems. Among the topics we address are:

    • energy materials,
    • carbon capture and utilization,
    • natural gas extraction and utilization,
    • alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles (NAFTC), and
    • advanced virtual energy simulation training and research (AVESTAR).

    Our research services provide the infrastructure behind the scenes of the Energy Institute:

    • NRCCE building wet laboratories, high bay, and meeting and office space serving the Energy Institute
    • Information Technology Services
    • Analytical Laboratory, certified by the West Virginia Division of Environmental Protection, providing analyses of groundwater, coal, biofuels, coal ash, and soil
    • Communications, responsible for outreach activities and media relations
