Biomass Feasibility Study for Trinity Campus

2009-10 Projects
Project Timeline: 
05/2010 to 09/2011
Project Progress: 
100%

Project Category: Research/Study

This project, approved by the CEF committee in 2010, explored the feasibility of a potential biomass energy system on UVM's Trinity Campus. 

Interns in the Physical Plant Department completed the first phase of the project, an initial feasibility study, in December of 2010.  They found it might be logistically possible to use biomass, and recommended questions for further study.

Project Progress: 
100%

Project Category: Infrastructure

The CEF is supporting the expansion of a building dashboard system similar to the current system in the Davis Center and the system planned for the new Aiken building. This system will display the energy usage of a number of buildings on campus in conjunction with the amount generated by renewable systems on campus.
