Clean Energy Futures Lecture/Workshop Series 2011-2013

2010-11 Projects
Project Timeline: 
05/2011 to 12/2013
Project Progress: 
100%

The CEF set aside funds to sponsor clean energy-related lectures, talks, symposia, and/or workshops. Applications were solicited with a rolling submission deadline. Interested individuals or departments applied for funds to offset a significant percentage of costs, such as speaker honoraria and travel, and event services charges.  

Clean Energy Fund Budget: $20,000

Biomass Feasibility Study for Trinity Campus

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

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. 

Virtual Solar Carport Course

2009-10 Projects
Project Progress: 
100%

In 2010, the Clean Energy Fund voted to support the development of a new course module by Richard Watts of UVM's Transportation Research Center. In Spring 2011, Dr, Watts will link the data points from a UVM solar array with the TRC's plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) as a demonstration tool for a course module, seminar, and class speaking engagements connecting sustainable transportation and renewable energy.

University-wide Energy Display System

2009-10 Projects
Project Progress: 
30%

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.

Clean Energy Fund Award: $0  (originally awarded $44,000)

Energy Auditing & Retrofitting Course

2009-10 Projects
Project Timeline: 
09/2010 to 12/2010
Project Progress: 
100%

The CEF funded the development of an energy auditing course (CDAE 195) by Gund Institute Fellow and Rubenstein and CDAE faculty Gary Flomenhoft. The CEF also provided funds for project implementation. The course ran in Fall 2010 and was taught by David Keefe. Student feedback was positive, and the class participated in a group audit of the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity house with infrared imaging and blower door testing.
