Important UCEAO News
In 2007, the University Clean Energy Alliance of Ohio (UCEAO) set out to create a network of academic professionals engaged in research and education on advanced and renewable energy issues, to facilitate collaboration and communication among them, and to promote the environmentally-responsible development and deployment of advanced and renewable energy technologies in Ohio. Since then, the organization has accomplished those goals through a variety of programs and partnerships, including six outstanding Annual Conferences and two Clean Energy Challenges that empowered Ohio’s student entrepreneurs. UCEAO benefited from the participation and support of the founding member research institutions, as well as affiliates representing independent colleges and universities, community colleges, government agencies, private sector entities, and statewide advocacy groups who shared the organization’s mission. Given changes in programmatic focus and financial resources – both on campuses and in the external environment – members of the Board of Governors have reluctantly decided to dissolve the organization, while maintaining a commitment to carry forward UCEAO’s mission and goals at their institutions and through other avenues. For further information, please contact Jane Harf, Director, or representatives of member institutions.
