  1. Babson GreenBuilding a Sustainable Future at Babson College Babson Energy and Environmental Club

  2. Project proposed to: Develop relationship with cleantech industry Demonstrate commitment to responsible environmental stewardship Build support for sustainability initiatives Encourage students to pursue alternative energy business endeavors Project Overview Installation plan for a small, residential scale (1.8 kW) wind turbine on Babson’s campus Babson Average Wind Speed Avoided Cost Project Price Tag $.09 kWh $9,435 4.6 m/s (10.3 mph)

  3. VAT Analysis 30 Models Identified 12 Being Produced 8 Appropriate 2 Sold in US 0 with MA Installers

  4. VAT Evaluation

  5. HAT Evaluation * Approximate install cost

  6. First residential generator with included inverter Low cost / Low risk investment Energy production in low wind (3.5 m/s cut in) Quiet and aesthetically pleasing design Innovative design would complement Babson’s educational focus (ABC Boston) Why Skystream?

  7. Project Economics

  8. Expected Turbine Output Energy Contribution at Blank Center Entrepreneurship Gallery (15-25%)

  9. Expected Turbine Output* Energy Contribution at Blank Center Entrepreneurship Gallery (40-60%) *with considered LED replacement project

  10. Marketing: Capturing Value 2006 Employment Data Reported by Massachusetts Technology Collaborative (more information) Demonstrate commitment to responsible environmental stewardship Build support for sustainability initiatives Encourage students to pursue alternative energy business endeavors Develop relationship with cleantech industry
