The UMR-MEC* Conference on Energy was organized in 1974 with the purpose of providing social scientists, scientists and engineers a means for rapid communication of their most recent research results in the field of energy and to offer solutions to the energy related problems of local government, business, industry and the general public.

The Conference was sponsored by the University of Missouri-Rolla and the Governor's Energy Council within the State of Missouri Department of Natural Resources with the cooperation of many professional societies. Much of the conference support was provided by the Department of Natural Resources and through a program of company registrations.

The 1970s was a very turbulent time for energy and these papers provide a historic look at the times and the impetus for changes in energy sources and management.

The conference was held at the University of Missouri--Rolla (now Missouri University of Science and Technology) in the following years:
  • April 24-26, 1974
  • October 7-9, 1975
  • October 12-14, 1976
