Clean Energy Fund Call for Ideas

The Clean Energy Fund seeks participation from students, faculty and staff for its annual Call for Ideas. The CEF generates $225,000 each year from a student fee to implement renewable energy projects on campus. As the University moves towards climate neutrality, the Clean Energy Fund presents a unique opportunity for the university community to engage with energy issues and learn about renewable energy technologies.  We welcome ideas for installation projects, curriculum and classes, and other innovative educational tools focusing on renewable energy.

Pilot Revolving Door Installation (architectural study)

2010-11 Projects
Project Progress: 
10%

Proposed by the Physical Plant Department, this project will lay the groundwork for a potential installation of energy-saving revolving doors at either the Davis Center or Bailey-Howe Library. Because revolving doors are a highly visible, culturally significant, and architecturally distinct approach to efficiency, this project would be well-aligned with the mission of the Clean Energy Fund. The end project would eventually involve students in measuring the actual energy, cost savings, and carbon reductions achieved once the revolving doors have been installed and in use.

GreenHouse Solar (structural & electrical study)

2010-11 Projects
Project Progress: 
10%

Though solar energy opportunities on campus will be addressed in the comprehensive campus renewable energy feasibility study, the CEF will support a structural and electrical feasibility study of the GreenHouse residential learning community facilities for a potential rooftop solar array.

Clean Energy Fund Award: *This project will be implemented as part of the Comprehensive Campus Renewable Energy Feasibility Study.
