Clean Energy Fund Opens Call for Ideas

 

Clean Energy Fund Accepting Proposals for the Call for Ideas

 

October 1 - November 15, 2012

 

The annual Call for Ideas is open October 1-November 15, 2012, and invites participation from students, faculty, and staff.  The Clean Energy Fund seeks innovative proposals focusing on renewable energy technology or education.  Past projects include solar PV installations, research classes, and student internships.  Two student-led  renewable energy greenhouse projects are underway, and a campus-wide Renewable Energy Feasibility Study was just completed in Summer 2012.  Results from this study will inform funding decisions for installation projects. 

The CEF generates $225,000 each year from a $10/semester student fee 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 technologies.  Our challenge to the university community is: How can UVM best advance clean energy research?
