The CEO of UND’s Energy & Environmental Research Center, Tom Erickson, says he will transition to a new role as the head of the new State Energy Research Center of North Dakota.
Erickson has been CEO for almost five years.
In April, the state Legislature passed a bill creating and funding the State Energy Research Center, which will operate within the EERC.
The new center will receive $5 million per biennium to conduct research that advances future energy opportunities to benefit the state’s economy and environment.
Erickson says he will remain as EERC CEO until a successor is named.
