For decades, the Energy & Geoscience Institute (EGI) at the University of Utah has served as a research resource for the energy industry. Now, as the institute celebrates its 50th anniversary, it sits at the forefront of new geothermal energy technologies, and brings in new computational tools to improve the use of geologic data by the energy industry.
EGI is one of the world’s largest university-hosted energy research consortia. The institute traces its history to two energy institutes created in the early 1970s: the Earth Sciences & Resources Institute (ESRI) at the University of South Carolina and the University of Utah Research Institute (UURI) at the University of Utah. In 1995, ESRI’s petroleum science division and UURI joined together under the EGI name. This year, EGI celebrates 50 years of global science and collaboration with Corporate Associate members and partners in academia, government and industry.
