The National Research Center for Coal and Energy became part of the Energy Institute in spring 2019, as part of WVU's long-standing commitment to research into safe, reliable and environmentally protective extraction and uses of West Virginia's coal resources. This website will soon be archived, and the web address will forward to the Energy Institute website (link below).
