Great Lakes Energy Education Center

Construction is complete on the Great Lakes Energy Education® Center at NWTC. It houses programs in power generation, transmission and management. The 32,000 sq. ft. building is powered by renewable energy and will be a showcase of energy-efficient design technologies. 

  • The Great Lakes Energy Education Center® has an EUI (energy use index) of around 30 kBTU/sf/yr., making it a very energy efficient building.
  • It is a Net Zero Capable building, meaning it will generate as much energy as it consumes once all power generation systems are in place.
  • Water Source variable refrigerant flow (VRF) System
  • Geothermal heating and cooling.
  • Dedicated outdoor air system  (DOAS) with total energy recovery wheel
  • Solar heating and passive solar lighting systems
  • Exposed, color-coded ductwork so students can see how utilities and systems in the building are connected.
  • Precise building monitoring and control systems so unused areas can be closed off and areas in use can be made most comfortable
NWTC's energy degree programs are rare in the United States--so rare that recruiters come from all areas of the United States to recruit graduates. The Energy Education Center itself is believed to be one of only three Net Zero Capable buildings in Wisconsin.
