Posted on 2/17/2017 by Larry Mattox SU

DENVER – Researchers from four universities met to discuss critical energy solutions at a meeting hosted by CoBank earlier this week. Organized by the National Energy Solutions Institute and Smart Energy Source (NESI-SES) Association, the collaboration included researchers and professors from Oklahoma State University, Colorado State University, the University of Colorado, and the Colorado School of Mines.

Biographies of the researchers in attendance can be found on the NESI-SES Association website at

The meeting focused on how the collaboration could leverage collective research from each university to find solutions for today’s larger energy problems. Specifically, researchers discussed produced water, sensor technologies, use of unmanned aerial vehicles, smart communities and urban planning, and renewable energy and smart grid technologies. Each university shared the related research being conducted at their university.

Following the meeting, attendees toured the Colorado State University Powerhouse Energy Campus, the Colorado School of Mines Produced Water Treatment and Beneficial Use Information Center, and the University of Colorado’s Renewable and Sustainable Energy Institute.

The collaboration will continue following the meeting through a collaborative gateway hosted by the NESI-SES Association. Follow the NESI-SES Association on social media and visit the NESI-SES website for additional information on this collaboration.
