US research university Dartmouth College (Dartmouth) announced that it is seeking proposals to construct a biomass energy heating facility and transmission system to replace the institution’s existing central heating system.
This marks a major step in the university’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions and transition to renewables by 2025.
According to a release, the biomass-based system is expected to cost more than $200 million (€175 million).
“With this important initiative, Dartmouth is keeping the promise we made on Earth Day 2017. This work has been eight years in the making, with research and planning from the Sustainability Office, Campus Services, and from faculty, staff, students, and trustees,” said Dartmouth executive vice-president Rick Mills.
