WY future should include value-added energy projects, report says
A report released by a coalition including the Wyoming Business Council, the University of Wyoming, and the Idaho National Laboratory detailed why Wyoming should diversify its energy production methods and how the state could use its abundant natural resources in value-added projects. That’s when raw resources are processed into more complex fuels and energy instead of just being burned. Wyoming Public Radio’s Irina Zhorov spoke with CEO of the Wyoming Business Council, Bob Jensen, and manager at the Idaho National Lab, Richard Boardman, about why value added projects are important and what Wyoming can do to get on board.
