Off-Campus Student Energy Conservation Study

2013-14 Projects
Project Timeline: 
Project Progress: 

Project Category: Research

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.
