Structure of STAT


The initial members of UCFER are the following nine founding universities: The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Pennsylvania State University, Princeton University, Texas A&M University, the University of Kentucky, the University of Southern California, the University of Tulsa, the University of Wyoming, and Virginia Polytechnic and State University. The principal office of the UCFER is located at the Pennsylvania State University on its University Park campus.

An important feature of UCFER is the flexibility in the organizational structure to add new members to further strengthen UCFER’s research capabilities. New members must have strong technical expertise in fossil energy research and qualifications in disciplines that support NETL’s five core competency areas. Applications from university members will be reviewed on a yearly basis.

Research Team

The University of Utah’s Energy and Geoscience Institute (EGI) is committed to creating a national laboratory to accelerate the development of enhanced geothermal technologies. EGI’s success will be dependent upon two interrelated factors: the suitability of the Milford site and our management team. The Milford site’s suitability is based on a range of characteristics that will allow for effective testing of EGS R&D concepts from across the nation. The team that we have assembled will create a collaborative platform for EGS R&D. This team is comprised of the nation’s best technical and R&D management leadership from the oil and gas and geothermal industry, R&D universities, national laboratories and energy technology companies. To enhance the capabilities and expand its reach, the EGI team will be supported by a Science and Technology Advisory Team composed of the leading experts in Enhanced Geothermal System development, reservoir stimulation and the DOE.
