PROJECT G.R.E.E.N.

UNIVERSITY OF IDAHO, COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING

556 tons/cycle

heat

Biomass Gasifier

THE BARN

DEMAND

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

  • LOCATED AT HORSETHIEF RESERVOIR

(NORTH OF BOISE, ID)

  • PROPOSING TO INSTALL A RENEWABLE ENERGY BASED SYSTEM TO MEET THE ENERGY
  • NEEDS FOR THE BARN, YMCA CAMP
  • EXPLORING AVAILABLE RENEWABLE POTENTIALS IN THE AREA
  • LEVERAGING RENEWABLE POTENTIALS FOR THE BENEFIT OF LOCAL COMMUNITY.

~6000 gallons

@

110oF

4 Hrs everyday for >4.5 years

WIND

  • EDUCATION ASPECTS FOR CAMP PARTICIPANTS
    • CONSERVATION OF ENERGY
    • CONVERSION OF ENERGY
    • ECONOMICS
  • LOCAL HIGH-SCHOOL STUDENTINVOLVEMENT FOR WIND ASSESSMENT OF AREA
  • AVERAGE DAILY ENERGY CONSUMPTION ~ 313KWH
  • DEMAND CHARGES COSTING APPROXIMATELY 50% OF
  • UTILITY BILL

Models suggests lack of wind

HYDRO

BIOFUELS/GEOTHERMAL

SOLAR GENERATION

  • BARN ROOF DESIGNED FOR SOLAR PANEL INSTALLATION
  • SOUTH ORIENTED
  • LARGELY DEPENDENT ON AUTHORIZATION FROM FISH AND GAME
  • POSSIBILITY FOR PERIOD OF NO PRODUCTION DUE TO DRAINING OF RESERVOIR
  • 50 kWh/day
  • COVERS 16.0% OF THE BARN’S DAILY USAGE

Wood-ash

(By-product)

Micro-Hydro Diversion Screen

  • Green-Houses
  • Effective in
  • Teaching the Food
  • Cycle
  • Encourages sustained
  • Farming
  • Promotes Camp’s Close to Nature’ idea
  • Benefits
  • Wood Ash from Gasifiers is a rich fertilizer
  • Smallest geothermal sites can sustain a greenhouse year-round in extreme conditions

Micro-Hydro Generator Bank

Fertilizer

  • REQUIRES 80 m2 OF ROOF SPACE WHICH IS AVAILABLE

Cash Flow Diagram

Horsethief Reservoir Spillway

  • Cascade Area
  • Spillway 1000+ gpm
  • Approximately 30ft. of head
  • 4 kW potential
  • Micro-Turbine Benefits
  • Low environmental impact
    • Educational in dispelling misconceptions
  • Round-the-clock generation

Heat

  • Using Micro-Geothermal
  • Lower Demand Charges and Electricity Consumption
  • Future Expansion unaffected
  • Valuable Educational Tool for local community
  • EXISITING HOT WATER WELL 95F DISCOVERED IN 2006
  • HIGH HOT WATER NEEDS
  • HIGH DEMAND CHARGES
