The ConocoPhillips Center for a Sustainable WE2ST at Colorado School of Mines was formulated to promote the joint sustainability of unconventional energy production and water resources through education of energy-water literate graduate and undergraduate students, and by conducting world-class research on both community acceptance of unconventional resource development, and water resources related to unconventional energy production.

 

Our Vision:

The ConocoPhillips Center for a Sustainable WE2ST at Colorado School of Mines will be the nation's "go-to" institution for research, education and outreach associated with the joint sustainability of water resources and energy production in arid lands.

Our specific goals are to:

  1. Address water sustainability challenges related to urban growth, agriculture, and energy in the arid west.
  2. Educate graduate and undergraduate students to be energy-water literate
  3. Conduct world-class research on the linkages between water resources and unconventional energy production
  4. Improve community-corporate-regulatory co-acceptance of unconventional energy production
