The Clean Energy Fund, (CEF) funded a feasibility study to help answer this question and generate scenarios to aid in renewable energy planning at UVM. The study was conducted over the summer of 2012 by CHA (Clough, Harbour, & Associates), and will be an invaluable tool for future decision-making about resource allocation to renewable energy installation projects on campus. The final recommendations, as well as the potential renewable energy installation locations map, will serve as foundational knowledge for both the CEF Committee, and for key campus stakeholders, including Capital Planning and Management, the Physical Plant Department, and senior administration.  Student interns worked with CHA to prepare analyses and feasibility reports, as well as to document the progress of the study.

Mieko A. Ozeki, Sustainability Projects Coordinator, and Michelle Smith, Green Building Coordinator, describe how the idea for this study came about, who was involved, how it is a unique project, and how students can contribute to UVM's future renewable energy decisions.
