At the CCCU, we believe that the success of advanced technologies is dependent on having a talented, well-trained workforce.  To this end, we actively train and motivate highly-talented students to engage in addressing the challenges of the energy grid, specifically through developing advanced low-emissions or negative-emissions coal technologies. The students are involved in both fundamental and applied research, and include undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students.  We also emphasize outreach, to help the broader public attain a greater appreciation of the needs of the energy grid.
