Abstract:

The goal of my project is to evaluate the practical potential for adoption of green energy technologies -- including solar hot water systems, PV systems, pellet stoves, and various types of insulation -- in small college buildings. I have been working with Facilities Management to collect almost 10 year’s worth of energy consumption data, and I have been conducting feasibility studies for these technologies on a subset of houses across campus. Data collection and research on carbon neutral energy options for these smaller buildings has been limited to date and it is my goal to provide some of this background for potential future investments in these energy alternatives. In total, my research will include green technology feasibility studies, a compilation of data from a broader set of small, college-owned homes, and a focused analysis of the costs and savings associated with making these upgrades.
