The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is a leader in development of renewable energy production infrastructure. As a signatory
and charter member, of the ACUPCC and ACORE, UW Oshkosh has demonstrated its commitment to reaching carbon
neutrality by 2025. Installations include geothermal heating and cooling systems, rotating photovoltaic panels for electricity
generation, solar thermal panel systems for hot water, but most importantly the nation?s and the America?s first commercial sized
dry fermentation anaerobic digester. Since commissioning this digester in 2011, the campus has also undertaken a project that
will install a wet digester next to the largest cow farm (9,000 cows) in Wisconsin which will produce 1.5 megawatts of energy
as well as recycle the digestate for use as mulch and fertilizer at homes and in communities. The digester will be in operation by
December, 2013. Yet a third style of digester, a small <100 kw unit for us on dairy farms has been installed on a local farm and
began production in March of this year.
Our goal is to be a ?living learning laboratory of renewable energy infrastructure? so that our students, faculty and staff can
experience and use these facilities as laboratories for curriculum and research. The University has partnered with the leading
renewable energy company in Germany, the Viessmann Corporation, a 2.3 billion euro company, in both the construction
and management of these biodigesters, but also in the support of the academic mission of the University through internships,
exchange programs and an endowed chair.
