Energy Advisory Board

Advisory Board Banner

The Energy Advisory Board engages industry experts and leaders to advance energy education and research.  Energy is one of the key initiatives of the University of Houston, together with the arts and health. 

The Energy Advisory Board is a volunteer board appointed by President Renu Khator.  Contributing to the University of Houston as “the energy university,” board members enhance research initiatives and energy education on campus and throughout the city. 

Underscoring the commitment to make the University of Houston the “go-to partner” for energy-related research, innovation, and solutions, Khator has named global industry leaders to the Energy Advisory Board. “Our board is made up of acknowledged leaders in the fields of energy development, management and implementation,” Khator said. “I am delighted that they support UH’s efforts to address the diverse research and work-force needs of the energy industry." 

The Energy Advisory Board lends strategic guidance, external coordination, and resource development for UH Energy, and strengthens the University of Houston’s reputation across the industry.  Members participate in committees to develop and to execute actionable plans in the areas of energy education, innovative research, and technology incubation.  The focus is on four core areas:  1) upstream, 2) midstream and downstream, 3) alternative energy, and 4) environmental sustainability.
