2013 Clean Energy Fund Call for Ideas Now Open!

The Clean Energy Fund's annual Call for Ideas is open 9/1 – 10/15, and invites proposals from students, faculty, and staff. CEF-funded projects include solar PV installations, research classes, a campus-wide renewable energy study, and student internships.  We welcome ideas for research projects and innovative educational tools focusing on renewable energy.  The Call for Ideas now has two phases: the ideas collection (9/1 - 10/15) and the commenting and voting period (10/15 - 11/15). 


The CEF generates $225,000 each year from student fees to implement renewable energy projects on campus. As the University moves towards climate neutrality, the Clean Energy Fund presents a unique opportunity for the university community to learn about renewable energy issues and possibilities on campus.


Submit your project ideas (deadline 10/15):


Comment & vote on ideas: 10/15 – 11/15!
