"Hydrogen is a natural fit for Wyoming energy production, as the state’s natural resources and existing infrastructure are well-suited to launch a hydrogen economy. School of Energy Resources (SER) at University of Wyoming is focused on energy-driven economic development for Wyoming. To that end, SER recently stood up the Hydrogen Energy Research Center (H2ERC) with support from the state of Wyoming, Anschutz, and Williams. H2ERC focuses on applied research to support the growth of the hydrogen industry in Wyoming."

About University of Wyoming's Hydrogen Energy Research Center

The University of Wyoming’s Energy Innovation Center (EIC) opened in December 2012 to support the University of Wyoming (UW) and the School of Energy Resources (SER) in achieving the mission of positioning Wyoming as a global leader in energy education, research and outreach. 


This state-of-the-art research and collaboration facility, located on the northwest corner of UW’s Laramie campus, includes technical research space, offices, a classroom, and meeting spaces. Modern, reconfigurable laboratory spaces play a key role in advancing our strategic plan. 

The design and construction of the EIC was made possible through private donations and State of Wyoming matching funds. Generous private donations were also given by Encana, BP, Shell, Peabody Energy, Arch Coal, Marathon Oil, Questar, and ConocoPhillips.

The EIC provides students, researchers, and academic professionals the opportunity to actively engage in, observe, and support advancements in sustainable energy technologies.
