Idaho Falls CAES Dedicated

Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter and the state’s U.S. Congressional delegation on Feb. 20 joined officials with the Idaho National Laboratory, Idaho’s three largest universities and the Department of Energy to officially dedicate the Center for Advanced Energy Studies in Idaho Falls.

The center, a 55,000-square-foot, $17 million energy research laboratory, is a partnership between INL, the universities and private industry that will focus on education, training and research into solutions for energy problems facing the nation. According to the CAES web site, CAES integrates resources, capabilities and expertise to create new research capabilities, expand researcher-to-researcher collaborations, and enhance energy-related educational opportunities. From a broad energy perspective that includes fossil, renewable, alternative energy, environmental stewardship, energy policy studies, and a focus on the national renaissance of commercial nuclear power, CAES delivers innovative, cost-effective, credible energy research leading to sustainable technology-based economic development.
