A short synopsis of the three studies on economic impacts of Utica Shale Development in Ohio.
The Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported earlier how electric generation from natural gas has been on the rise. How does that break down by state?
Dartmouth College researchers publish "Geographic Dispersion of Economic Evidence from the Fracking Revolution", looking at the economic impacts in producing counties and throughout the whole region.
The retired Sunbury coal-fired power plant in Snyder County will be converted to a natural gas powered station by the first quarter of 2018; it's considered to be one of the largest coal-to-natural gas power conversion projects in the US.

Easily manufactured, low cost, lightweight, flexible dielectric polymers that can operate at high temperatures may be the solution to energy storage and power conversion in electric vehicles and other high temperature applications, according to a team of Penn State engineers. (more...)
Through its Agricultural Law Resource & Reference Center, Penn State Law has conducted extensive outreach activities in agricultural law for nearly two decades. To more accurately reflect the focus of this work and the interconnected nature of agricultural law and shale gas development, the center's name has been changed to the Center for Agricultural and Shale Law.
