We work closely with WVU faculty members to coordinate large-scale, multidisciplinary research and outreach programs. Established in 1979 as the Energy Research Center, today the EI/NRCCE works with more than 100 WVU faculty members and research professionals to conduct programs in:
- Fuel and Power
- Energy Efficiency
- Environmental Remediation
- Alternative Transportation Fuels
- Rural Water Infrastructure
We are dedicated to:
- Securing our nation’s energy needs, and
- Protecting our environment.
We create and disseminate knowledge and technologies on:
- The development, delivery, and use of clean, efficient, abundant energy, especially
fossil fuel-based energy.
- The delivery, use, and protection of water quality and quantity, especially related
to mining and industrial applications and for residential use in rural
- The protection of air quality through energy conservation and alternative transportation
- The management of solid waste, especially in industrial applications and in small,
- The reclamation of land affected by mining and industrial applications.
Organizationally, the NRCCE reports to the WVU Energy Institute within the Office of
Research and assists with other University-wide programs, such as the NETL-Regional
We are a confederation of programs. Each program contributes to our vision of abundant energy and water resources, healthful environment and a robust economy.
Our unique collection of programs makes the EI/NRCCE a valuable marketplace for solutions to America’s energy and environmental problems.
