Final Weeks

With the Equine Center Solar PV project completed and the final Comprehensive Campus Renewable Energy Feasibility Study reports being written, these Clean Energy Fund projects are winding down. My outreach duties have not however, and with the final weeks of the internship coming to an end I have been working on multiple press releases, an information pamphlet for the Equine Center, and reflecting on what I have learned over the past weeks and how these new skills will affect my future career.

Organization and Time Management

I believe the greatest skills I am acquiring from this internship thus far are organization and time management. Working two labor jobs on top of this internship has proven challenging; physically and mentally. Thankfully, I have been able to keep track of my to do lists and use my resources, including my iPhone and Basecamp, a project management software, to organize myself.

University Heights Revisited and Solar Thermal

I have had a busy two weeks revisiting some areas of campus for photovoltaic reports as well as continuing my work with the Equine Center interviews. However, the majority of my time has been spent researching solar thermal technologies in preparation for our upcoming campus wide feasibility analysis with respect to that technology. Both the Equine Center installation and the campus wide feasibility study are progressing smoothly as we approach the half way mark of the project.

First Two Weeks: PV Surveying

I have learned a lot since the start of the Clean Energy Fund internship two weeks ago. The first days began with meetings so that all the interns could meet one another as well as the UVM and CHA employees that we would be working with. Clough Harbour and Associates  (CHA) is an engineering firm that UVM selected to work on the project.  After being introduced to what the internship would entail, the schedule and deliverables of the project were laid out.
