Institute for Energy Studies (IES)
The Institute for Energy Studies (IES) pursues new frontiers in energy education, research and outreach that enable the development of the next generation of integrated energy technologies that are economically competitive, reliable, sustainable, and politically and environmentally acceptable.
Recognize North Dakota's vast energy resources - lignite coal, oil and gas, wind, solar, biomass and other renewables - it is natural that the University of North Dakota play a vital role in reducing our dependence on foreign sources of energy. The Institute for Energy Studies' was created to position UND as a premier "Energy University" that inspires the creation of new knowledge that enables the development of revolutionary energy technologies, trains the next generation of energy experts, and establishes advanced industries required to make affordable emissions free energy technologies a reality.
The Institute, its Faculty Affiliates and Affiliated Research Groups have a long history of successful projects. Success stories will be continually added. Please browse through our archive to see examples of our accomplishments.
The IES team and Faculty Affiliates actively publish the findings of their research. A listing of key publications is provided along with copies of the publicly available documents. We are continually updating this list, so check back often for new work.
