The University of Iowa School of Urban and Regional Planning has teamed up with the Greater Dubuque Development Corp. in order to further renewable-energy research efforts.

Chuck Connerly, a UI professor urban and regional planning, spoke at the state Board of Regents' meeting Wednesday about some of the projects the graduate students in the school have been working on.

UI graduate student Robyn Fennig introduced her website that allows for people to see ground, wind, and solar heat pump potential for any parcel in Dubuque. This website will help citizens of Dubuque make smarter choices about energy, she said.

"Every parcel within the city limits of Dubuque … is available," Fennig said.

The information from the website will be available on the Greater Dubuque Development Corp.'s website.
