The university recently opened their first zero energy building, the Lombardo Welcome Center. As an EPA Green Power Partner, the building features over 500 rooftop solar panels, a geothermal heating system, and an energy-efficient design that allow it to generate more energy than it consumes. “Zero energy starts with energy efficiency. The Lombardo Welcome Center is about 60 percent more energy efficient than the other buildings on campus,” explains MU sustainability manager, Chris Steuer. “The University of committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2040.
