2013 Annual Report

The Wisconsin Energy Institute (WEI) is becoming an energy leader on campus and beyond. With the unveiling of our state-of-the-art, energy-efficient research facility, we’ve begun connecting, collaborating and coordinating the efforts of more than one hundred energy, bioenergy and sustainability researchers from departments across the University of Wisconsin–Madison. By bringing together organizations like the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center, the Wisconsin Bioenergy Initiative and the Center for Renewable Energy Systems, the WEI has been able to develop and expand a number of education, outreach and research initiatives in pursuit of the Wisconsin Idea and our foundational goals.

Explore how we are moving forward in energy by fostering the creation of collaborative research efforts, preparing the energy leaders of today and tomorrow, and enhancing public understanding of pressing energy issues.
