The Cooperative Research Network and the Centre for Energy Advancement through Technological Innovation research organizations held task force meetings at CAER. Both of these organizations are created to perform research and solve problems for the electric utility industry. The CRN’s members are the Rural Electric Cooperatives and the task force that met at CAER is the Generation, Fuels and Environment Group. CEATI is a similar group made up of international utilities. A portion of their time was also spent in presentations on CAER research and an in depth tour.
