UVM's Alternative Energy Racing Organization (AERO) built an all-electric, zero emissions race car over the course of 2012-2013 academic year. A race-ready vehicle was ready in time for the 2013 International Formula Hybrid Competition in May 2013, where CleanSpeed placed 2nd in the electric division. The team will be working on a second iteration of the vehicle, using the existing structure, in 2013-2014 for next year's Formula Hybrid Competition.

The Virtualized Desktop project focuses on virtualizing one computer lab in the Kalkin building as a pilot to build the capacity and to create a demonstrable configuration to roll out VDIs across campus. This pilot project is a collaboration between Enterprise Technology Services (ETS) and School of Business Administration with the goal of reducing energy consumption by computer labs.
Four projects have been approved for funding from the Clean Energy Fund Committee. Nearly $102,000 will be awarded to the selected projects, pulling from the $225,000 generated each year from the Clean Energy Fund (CEF). The Clean Energy Fund assesses UVM undergraduate and graduate students a $10 fee each semester to establish new clean energy projects on and around the UVM campus.
Awarded projects include the following:
