funds. Students in the science, technology, engineering, and
mathematics area present their research locally, nationally,
and internationally. Internships give students hands-on field
experience. Student clubs and organizations offer students
the opportunity to lead, work as a
team, network, and serve the community. The UVI experience is uniquely
multicultural, international, entrepreneurial, and intellectually stimulating.
UVI provides a vital and exciting environment for educating future leaders
of the global 21st-century community.
Table 2 summarizes the enrollment of
UVI in fall 2012.
The Caribbean Green Technology
Center (CGTC) at UVI was created in
2011 to advance energy and environmental sustainability in the U.S. Virgin Islands and their neighbors
throughout the Caribbean Basin. In
the face of severe economic pressures
and energy and water insecurity, the
CGTC serves as an important clearinghouse for information and processes geared toward supporting and
protecting natural resources and the
development of alternative and
renewable-energy technologies. The CGTC serves as a
vibrant intellectual hub for learning, networking, and innovation in and across the Caribbean, in all areas pertaining
to green technology. Its main purpose is to foster research,
education, and public service on sustainability; promote
Caribbean interislands cooperation; advance interdisciplinary investigations and learning; collaborate with govern-

mental agencies and industry partners; and research,
develop, demonstrate, and monitor green technology. The
CGTC addresses scientific, policy, and implementation
issues around the topic of green technology and sustainability, especially as it pertains to living in the Caribbean. It brings together groups of researchers, industry
leaders, and policy makers to address
and solve problems and implement
solutions that lead to better lives for
the people of the Caribbean.
In an attempt to reduce energy
consumption, UVI started examining
firms to provide alternative renewable- energy solutions. In the field of
renewable energies, there are solar,
wind, biomass, water, geothermal,
and hydrogen and fuel cells. Previously, wind turbines were researched.
Because of the maintenance required
for these units during hurricane season, it was determined that any wind
project would not be feasible. Thus, a
request for qualifications was advertized to explore firms that could provide a power purchase agreement
(PPA) for a PV system. The PV systems
could be ground mounted, rooftop mounted, carport integration, or a combination of all three. Any option would be
rated to the Florida hurricane standards for 150-mi/h winds
and gusts and would not require additional maintenance
during hurricane season. The systems would tie into the
UVI power grid to support as much electrical consumption
as possible.

The Caribbean Green
Technology Center at
UVI was created in
2011 to advance
energy and
environmental
sustainability in the
U.S. Virgin Islands
and their neighbors
throughout the
Caribbean Basin.
