Mining for Green Energy

Presenters: David Nelson, City of Negaunee

Michigan Technological University and the City of Negaunee are collaborating on a pilot study to determine if abandoned mines can be profitably converted into utility-scale batteries, storing “green” energy for consumers on the electrical grid. Dave Nelson will talk about the City of Negaunee's partnership with MTU to explore ways to return abandoned mine shafts into to productive industrial use, providing jobs and lowering energy costs, while also preserving or enhancing the historical fabric of their community.
