Morgantown, W.Va.—The strategic plan for the WVU Advanced Energy Initiative is now complete.
The WVU Research Corp. will present the plan to WVU faculty and administration August 19 from 4-6 p.m. at the National Research Center for Coal and Energy.
Over the past several months, an ad hoc Energy Planning Committee sought input from WVU faculty, members of federal and state agencies, industrial organizations, national laboratories and other academic institutions.
This led to the development of a vision and high-level goals statement providing the road map for achieving the strategic plan. This road map looks at organizational change for an energy mission, assignment of resources, development of new and/or enhancement of existing programs and relationships, the addition of new energy faculty, and alignment with the needs of the many stakeholders that the University serves.
Members of the committee that developed the plan are Mridul Gautam, interim associate vice president for research and economic development; Gene Cilento, dean of the College of Engineering and Mineral Resources; Cameron Hackney, dean of the Davis College of Agriculture, Forestry and Consumer Sciences; n Mary Ellen Mazey, dean of the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences; and Joe Strakey, chief technology officer for the National Energy Technology Laboratory.
