MORGANTOWN, W.VA. (AP) - West Virginia University and Virginia Tech are brainstorming about possible collaborations on energy issues ranging from production and consumption to environmental effects.

Officials with the U.S. Department of Energy will speak at the April 25 symposium at Pipestem State Park.

Among them are Henry Kelly, a deputy assistant secretary for the Office of Energy, and Michelle Fox, chief strategist for the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.

Virginia Gov. Robert McDonnell has also been invited to participate, and the presidents of both institutions _ WVU’s James Clements and Virginia Tech’s Charles Steger _ are expected to speak.
