Webinar: Highlighting University Sponsored Energy Innovation Centers

May 18, 2022

1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. ET

Remotely via Zoom


This webinar highlights innovative energy work happening at universities. Gems hidden in in plain sight, there is a wealth of innovative energy research and development happening at over 150 institutions of higher learning across the country. In addition to developing technologies that are eventually deployed within the industry, these institutions educate the next generation of energy sector leaders through education, coursework, and hands-on experiences. Academic energy centers also frequently partner with the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) 17 national laboratories which NARUC regularly features in this webinar series.

Join NARUC’s Center for Partnerships and Innovation to learn more about university-sponsored energy innovation centers and the role they play creating our energy future.
