SIUE, Madison County to Partner on Energy Sector Study

Submitted by on August 23, 2016 – 1:17 pmNo Comment

by Kelsey Landis (The Telegraph)  A grant from a national non-profit organization will fund a study examining how to develop Madison County’s energy industry, officials announced last week.

Representatives from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville applied for the grant along with Madison County Employment and Training, and Madison County Community Development.

SIUE’s National Corn-to-Ethanol Research Center and the two county departments will administer the grant, which will fund a study looking at how to connect economic and workforce development in Madison County to to education. There is no dollar amount for the grant, but technical expenses will be paid for by non-profit USA Funds, said Courtney Breckenridge, a spokesperson for the research center.

“We’re including everything from supply to delivery, from traditional electric-type companies, to ethanol, to biofuel. It’s a diverse group. We’re taking a very much an all-of-the-above philosophy. What we’re trying to find is who are the industries that are impacted by the successes and businesses of the industry,” Breckenridge said. “Some of those companies seem at odds, but a lot of times there’s a crossover. Finding those synergies and working together is going to be very important.”

The goal of the study, Breckenride said, is to pinpoint “how we can be sure Madison County has its best foot forward” in being competitive for energy industry expansion and in bringing new business to the area. Chairman Alan Dunstan said

The research center at SIUE aims to develop and commercialize biofuels, specialty chemicals and other renewable compounds. It features a fully functional dry-grind pilot plant and laboratories equipped with advanced biofuel capabilities. READ MORE
