Energy Days was held on May 29 and 30, 2019, at The Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center. Energy Days is a two-day conference that brings together professionals working in all areas of energy, including members of industry, government, non-profits, and academia. The goal is to create an opportunity for a diverse range of stakeholders to collaborate.
The purpose is to identify and discuss critical regional, national, and global energy challenges and opportunities for society. Ultimately, the conference looks to create new partnerships to address key research needs and provide innovative solutions to energy challenges.
Over two days in late May, representatives from the UCFER member universities gathered at the second annual Technical Review Meeting to discuss the direction of NETL research, UCFER’s progress, and hear project updates from PIs. The meeting was held at the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on May 22-23, 2019.
