20 Mar 2023
University of St. Thomas’ innovation in renewable energy is catching the eye of lawmakers in Washington, resulting in new federal partnerships that are garnering national attention.
Thanks to the efforts of U.S. Rep. Betty McCollum, more than $10 million is on its way to St. Thomas to advance microgrid research and establish a new center dedicated to helping emerging companies develop clean energy technology. Through it all, St. Thomas students will have a front-row seat to groundbreaking technology only found at a handful of institutions across North America.
