More than half of the university’s greenhouse gas emissions come from heating and cooling classrooms, labs, residence halls and offices. If UMass Lowell (UML) is to achieve carbon neutrality in the next 30 years, that must change. So the university recently completed its Alternative Energy Master Plan, funded by a $100,000 grant from the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources, to identify and prioritize campus projects that can help meet future energy demands while also cutting emissions.

The Executive Summary of the plan is available.
