Research drives science and technology–driven innovation in Wisconsin’s Energy, Power, and Controls (EPC) sector, as it has for more than 100 years.
The Midwest Energy Research Consortium (M-WERC) partners with top scientists at UW–Madison, UW–Milwaukee, Marquette University, and the Milwaukee School of Engineering in a public-private research model that helps our member companies solve the toughest problems our industry faces in this new industrial revolution. This innovative approach to research will help us tackle the biggest obstacles facing the EPC industry and the state economy. It will also make Wisconsin a national leader in science and technology–driven innovation and forge a reputation that is a magnet for investment, job creation, and talent.
