The NextGen Energy Program
Energizing Our Campus. Securing Our Future. Strengthening Our Resiliency.
The University of Maryland is committed to being a responsible steward of our financial and shared resources, including the air, water and land we all rely on every day.
A global leader in research, entrepreneurship and innovation, UMD is home to more than 40,700 students, 14,000 faculty and staff, and 388,000 alumni, all dedicated to the pursuit of Fearless Ideas. Our College Park campus is a small city unto itself.
To support this expansive enterprise, the university relies on a variety of energy sources, including wind, solar and natural gas.
NextGen plays a critical role in ensuring UMD can depend on a reliable and resilient energy system for decades to come. NextGen will serve as a platform to advance UMD’s campus-wide sustainability goals and decarbonize our energy system.
We Are One University Community. Together, We Will Power Our Future.
