Renewable Energy Learning Centre

The Renewable Energy Learning Centre is a 1970s farm house that has been remodeled into a net-zero energy facility providing space for applied research and learning at Lakeland College. The building demonstrates energy efficient construction and its building control systems can integrate all of the renewable energy technologies demonstrated at the Research Centre: solar photovoltaic, solar thermal, geothermal, small wind. This facility generates all of its heating and cooling needs from renewable technologies and sends excess electrical energy to power the adjacent Vermilion campus. Lakeland students from a wide variety of programs use the Centre as a learning tool for their programs and community members are welcome to tour through the facility to build their knowledge of green energy technologies. Industry partners use the Centre for meetings and as a test site for new technologies.
