UVM Engineers Build Tiny Renewable Wind Turbine for Developing World

[Written by Joshua E. Brown] .00002 miles per hour might remind you of a bad day on the interstate. But that’s how fast some bamboo can grow: up to 35 inches every day — a world record. It’s a grass that can, in a few months, grow as tall as a tree. And, as it grows on, say, a mountainside in China or Chile, it gets hammered by the wind. But it doesn’t break. It flexes and resists, using the power of the sun to grow up and the power of the wind to grow strong. [READ MORE]

CEF funds will be used to provide home energy devices (HEDs) to UVM students living off-campus in Burlington, at no (or, a subsidized) cost. These devices connect to residential smart meters and make available real-time energy consumption information. Burlington Electric Department is in the process of deploying Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) in the city, but choices of how, when, and whether or not to use HEDs have not yet been made.

GreenSpeed4 will be AERO’s fourth generation hybrid vehicle. The AERO team has decided to design and build a vehicle with a parallel hybrid system.  AERO has added about 35 new members to our team from a variety of different majors. This increasing wealth of new ideas combined with the experience and guidance from the older AERO members makes it strategic to start building GreenSpeed4 now. This unique balance will also ensure the interest and dedication throughout the entire project.
