Joint UMaine/Ocean Energy Institute Initiative to Honor Simmons Legacy, Further Ocean Energy Objectives
A generous donation from the family of the late Matthew R. Simmons, the founder and chair of the Ocean Energy Institute (OEI), along with all the gifts from friends and colleagues given to OEI in his memory, will create opportunities for the University of Maine to further the OEI objectives rooted in his visionary perspectives on the vast potential of ocean resources to provide clean energy options.
UMaine will establish a Matthew R. Simmons Ocean Energy Initiative Fund in its development office to pick up the OEI mantle and support work that will advance ocean energy research and development, education, commercialization and outreach efforts.
The Ocean Energy Institute itself will cease operations on January 31, 2011.
