UVM Electric Vehicle Charging Station Feasibility Study

2013-14 Projects
Project Timeline: 
06/2014
Project Progress: 
100%

Project Category: Research/Study

The UVM Electric Vehicle Charging Station Feasibility Study will evaluate how best to bring electric vehicle charging stations to the University of Vermont campus.  Examples of questions we would look to answer include:

Off-Campus Student Energy Conservation Challenge

2013-14 Projects
Project Timeline: 
06/2014
Project Progress: 
50%

Project Category: Education/Infrastructure

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. 

CEF Lecture Series: Campus Food & Energy Seminar Series

2013-14 Projects
Project Timeline: 
01/2014 to 05/2014
Project Progress: 
100%

Project Category: Education

This lecture series will bring 3-5 guest speakers to the University of Vermont during the Spring 2014 semester to share their expertise on a range of subjects related to sustainable university food service, including energy issues. These events will serve an educational purpose for the UVM community and also provide a forum for discussion regarding our community goals for the UVM campus food system. 

UVM/Community 2013 Biomass Feasibility Study (Phase I)

2012-13 Projects
Project Timeline: 
05/2013 to 05/2014
Project Progress: 
100%
Project Category: Research/Study
 
This study examined the technical and financial feasibility of piping excess thermal energy from the nearby wood-fired McNeil Generating Station, the city’s existing power plant, to a portion of the UVM campus and the nearby hospital. This community energy idea is often described as “district heating  (DH).” If implemented, Community DH would bring UVM within reach of its student-supported goal of climate-neutral heating and cooling by 2020.
