Micro-Alternative Energy

Prospective Study for UVM and Residential Implementation

By: Ty Bereskie, Caleb Fields, and Sara Fleishman

What is Micro-Alternative Energy?

Economic Viability

Types of Micro-Alternative Energy Studied

Micro-Alternative energy is the rapidly expanding field of small-scale, renewable generation of electricity that can operate with or without connection to the power grid.

Currently, micro-alternative energy is nothing more than a growing niche, used mostly in developing countries. However, with more development in the field it can become a more viable option for future widespread implementation, as there are types of micro-alternative energy suitable for basically any environment.

  • Micro-Wind Power
      • Horiztonal Axis Wind Turbines (HAWTs)
      • Vertical Axis Wind Turbines (VAWTs)
      • Wind Kites

The Study Site

  • Micro-Solar Power
      • Small Scale Solar Arrays
      • Nano-Solar Concentrators
      • Solar Balloons & Solar Kites

Funding

This project was based upon potential micro-alternative energy implementation at the George D. Aiken Forestry Sciences Laboratory located on Spear Street in South Burlington, Vermont.

  • Other
      • Small Scale Bioenergy Generators
      • Micro-Hydropower
      • Biotechnology (Nano-vent Skin)

Funding is available from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2990 and from the Vermont Energy development Fund through the Vermont Renewable Energy Incentive Program.

Additionally, funding may be available through the University’s Green Energy Fund.
