Midwest Energy Efficiency Research Consortium

alternative energy


The Midwest Energy Efficiency Research Consortium (MEERC) consists of six existing programs that have combined to advance energy efficiency (EE) in a multi-state Midwestern region: (a) Lighting Technology, (b) High Performance Buildings, (c) Energy Services and Solutions, (d) Low Energy Heating & Cooling, (e) Agricultural Energy Efficiency (EE), (f) EE in Water & Wastewater Utilities.   The goal is to advance EE in the Midwest by incorporating a coursework and training program with delivery in classrooms, on-line and by University Extension, and collaborating with other organizations.  MEERC will also conduct research & development of EE technologies.  Because of reducing resources, we are combining the six programs to continue and expand their activities.  Funding will include contributions and memberships, contracts and grants, and coursework and training programs.  The financial goal is to achieve net revenues of $2,000,000 per year.  Mizzou Advantage funds will be used to continue developing and marketing the MEERC.
