The University of Wisconsin consistently ranks among the top university recipients of Department of Energy research funding, and their interdisciplinary work brings together faculty researchers and other scientists from engineering, chemistry, life sciences, and other related disciplines. Their Energy Institute website provides timely and compelling information about some of their work, along with offering archived webcasts and audio features from their various lecture series and presentations. A good way to get a sense of these presentations is by clicking on the "Events" tab and looking through their recent lectures and talks, which in the past have included "Geothermal 101", "Beyond Ethanol", and "The Future Landscape of Geofuels". Visitors will also want to look at their outreach programs, which include information on the Wisconsin Public Utility Institute and The Midwest Rural Energy Council.
