Energy Policy Institute (EPI)
The Energy Policy Institute (EPI), located on the Boise State University campus, provides robust and timely research that meets the challenges of an increasingly carbon-constrained economy, which include the need for energy and environmental security, as well as sustainable economic development.
EPI has the unique capability to leverage the know-how of researchers and faculty from the CAES partners to match specific research projects and the needs of stakeholders and funding agencies at the international, national, regional, and local levels.
Energy Efficiency Research Institute (CEERI)
The CAES Energy Efficiency Research Institute (CEERI), based out of Boise State University, promotes the efficient and effective use of energy resources through cutting edge research, accessible education and effective outreach.
CEERI’s goals include developing energy efficiency concepts through research in applied technology and consumer behavior; providing specialized education for energy efficiency technicians, engineers and architects; evaluating existing energy-saving technologies; and creating infrastructure for the accelerated transfer of ideas from the institute to the marketplace.

Isotope and Materials Science Roadmapping Working MeetingDate: Jun 25, 2018 - Jun 26, 2018 All DayContact: Paul Stonaha Email: email@example.com
Location: 995 University Blvd, Idaho Falls, ID 83401, USA
The purpose of this working meeting is to form a collaborative research initiative between CAES universities, the Idaho Accelerator Center (IAC, Pocatello), and the INL. Attendees will work to answer the question: "What research facilities are necessary to meet present and future needs in isotope and nuclear materials science?" Contributions from attendees will be used to develop a 5 to 10 year road map for future research capabilities that will support isotope and nuclear material research. One focus will be a proposed pulsed neutron source at the IAC. The road map will serve as a boilerplate for future proposals. Abstracts should focus on current and future production, uses, and characterization of isotopes and nuclear materials (cladding, fuel, etc.). The workshop will include select presentations, breakout sessions, workshop review, and a tour of the Idaho Accelerator Center (transportation there and back provided). Abstract Submission Deadline: June, 8, 2018

Global Materials Working Meeting and Capabilities TourDate: Aug 27, 2018 - Aug 28, 2018 All DayContact: Amy MollEmail: email@example.com
Boise State University will host a Global Materials Working Meeting and capabilities tour on their campus. This meeting will focus on computation materials science, materials for extreme environments, and materials for sensor development. It will also feature a tour of BSU’s new Micron School of Materials Science and Engineering. These workshops are the result of three collaborative research planning meetings held between CAES and INL's major research directorates earlier this fiscal year.
