Department of Energy in Greensburg, Kansas
Officials from the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy came to Greensburg, Kansas several days after most of the city was destroyed by an EF-5 tornado in May 2007. DOE’s goal is to help the residents rebuild their City as a model energy community, with homes, school, and other buildings that use 30%-50% less energy; electricity from wind power; electricity and heat from other renewable sources; and alternative fuels and vehicles.
DOE called on its National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado to provide technical assistance to the city. NREL has had a team of a dozen people working with Greensburg on its energy opportunities since June 2007.
