NCU, Wigton form renewable energy partnership

Northern Caribbean University (NCU) will partner with Wigton Windfarm to expand the educational institution’s venture into renewable energy.

Northern Caribbean University president Dr Lincoln Edwards.

According to NCU’s president, Dr Lincoln Edwards, the partnership will ensure that wind technology will be transferred to NCU. He said that the windmill on top of Sorenson Hall at the institution is a move towards achieving this objective.

Speaking at the launch of the book, Confronting Global Climate Change: Experiments and Applications in the Tropics, at NCU’s Mandeville Campus recently, Edwards said the engineering faculty has already built solar panels to further the university’s move to use more renewable energy.

He said the university is also seeking other partnerships in adopting green technologies, to reduce the use of fossil fuels at the institution and help to lessen the rise in global temperature.
