Greg Cuomo heads the University of Minnesota's Renewable Energy Research and Demonstration Center, near the University's Morris (UMM) campus.

People say we already have adult stem cell therapies, so we don’t need to study embryonic cells. But that just isn’t so.

The Center aims to integrate renewable energy into Minnesota’s rural economies and to make Minnesota, through research and education, a leader in the field of renewable energy.

One of the demonstration projects at the Center is a 230-foot tower for a 1.65 megawatt wind turbine—the first large-scale wind research turbine at a US public university. The energy produced by the turbine provides more than half of UMM’s energy needs.
