Transportation, commercial building, and home energy usage produces 76% of Greenhouse Gas emissions globally. Metropolitan Energy Center is the only nonprofit in the Kansas City area that is equipped to address all of these concerns. We provide resources, technical assistance, consulting services, and education to businesses and governments seeking energy efficiency and alternative fuel options. Efficient energy use is the centerpiece of our work.
We seek to forge community partnerships around renewable energy development, building efficiency, environmentally-sound transportation options, and the promotion of green practices. Our “choose your green” approach helps diverse organizations cut costs and improve environmental health in ways that make sense for them. We provide boots-on-the-ground action against climate change and harmful pollutants, as we help cities and businesses go green vehicle by vehicle and building by building. MEC strives to preserve the livability of our communities for generations to come.
