Memorial is taking a giant step forward toward reducing greenhouse gas emissions and the university’s carbon footprint. Funding was announced to replace a fuel-fired steam boiler with two electric-powered steam boilers in Memorial’s utilities annex.
Electrification within the Utilities Annex will shift buildings from primarily oil-fueled heating systems to systems primarily powered by clean electricity from the province’s vastly renewable hydroelectric grid.
