website image Marywood University Uses Mine Water for Energy - In an effort to continue Marywood's commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship, abandoned mine shafts beneath the campus have a new purpose in the quest for alternative energy sources. Marywood and Greenman-Pedersen, Inc., an engineering and construction services firm, recently repurposed abandoned coal mines underneath the campus into a source of geothermal energy for the Center of Architectural Studies. Ground-coupled geothermal systems use the constant temperature of the earth's crust to exchange energy for heating and cooling applications. The new geothermal system utilizes two wells to extract energy from the earth. This system was completed during the summer of 2010 and serves a portion of the cooling needs of the Center of Architectural Studies.
