Industry may work with Energy Institute's NRCCE through collaborations on a variety of research and education programs. Examples include the Appalachian Oil and Natural Gas Research Consortium, TransTech Energy Research and Business Development Program, the National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium and the West Virginia Water Research Institute.
Typically participation is through the coordination of research in response to federal funding agency opportunities. EI/NRCCE may work as a prime contractor or as a subcontractor on federally funded research. EI/NRCCE may also conduct specific research on behalf of an industry sponsor. Industry representatives may contact program managers in their area of interest or may schedule an appointment with the EI/NRCCE director to learn more.
