The University of Missouri (MU) is dedicated to environmentally sustainable policies and practices that promote responsible stewardship of existing resources and the environment. Three current areas of energy focus include: biomass, solar, and wind. Including these renewable energy technologies in the campus energy portfolio helps achieve campus sustainability goals and provides Mizzou with clean reliable energy. In addition to purchasing wind based electricity, recently installed projects include a 100 percent biomass boiler capable of providing electricity and thermal energy to campus, a demonstration wind turbine, and solar PV. MU is currently installing a solar thermal system which will be used to preheat water for MU's Combined Heat and Power Facility. These green initiatives will also help to further the academic and research missions of the University.
