U of L To Operate Renewable Energy Center

The University of Louisville will be the home of a center devoted to the development of renewable energy.It will be called the Conn Center, named in honor of U of L alumnus Henry Conn and his wife, Rebecca, who have donated $20 million to support work there.U of L President James Ramsey says the university is ready to begin operating the center."We're going to work with busineses, we're going to work with E.on, we're going to work with GE, Ford, major corporations, we're going to work with other universities. We're going to aggressively seek private funds, and yes, they'll be a point in time when the Kentucky economy gets better and we'll seek some state funds," Ramsey said.Ramsey says the $20 million pledge is the largest ever private donation to the school.(Photo courtesy of University of Louisville)
