LOWELL — UMass Lowell was awarded a $100,000 grant by the Baker-Polito Administration to be used for a feasibility study aimed at achieving carbon neutrality at the university by 2050.

The study will fund the development of a campus-wide Renewable Energy Master Plan that will take a strategic approach to assessing renewable options, according to a press release from the Department of Energy Resources.

“As the highest ranked university for sustainability in Massachusetts, UMass Lowell continues to lead by example,” UMass Lowell Chancellor Jacqueline Moloney said in the release. “This important study will allow us to identify and prioritize renewable energy options for our campus while also offering new teaching and research opportunities, which is a hallmark of UMass Lowell’s comprehensive sustainability program.”
