Win $200,000 In Energy Competition

To help address the important issue of conserving energy or finding new sources of energy there is a competition going on. This is not a grant program but a competiton / contest sort of thing. There is a $200,000 grand prize plus a few other cash prizes as well.

One of the eligibility requirements is that all entrants’ businesses must support a technology, product, or service in the clean energy sector. Another requirement is that you have to enter this competition as part of a team - you can't enter as an individual.

Your entry can include but is not limited to:

  • Renewable sources of energy (solar, wind, fuel cells, bio-fuels, geothermal, hydro-technologies, etc.)

  • Conservation and demand response (building use, grid management, delivery & transportation, resource mining, extraction and refining)

  • Enabling technologies (power electronics, storage systems and batteries, cables & wires, sensors & instrumentation, control systems, materials & manufacturing technology)

  • More efficient & effective use of hydrocarbons (hybrid cars, cleaner use of coal, more environmentally friendly oil recovery methods, CO2 sequestration)

  • Integrated Systems (sustainable design & integrated clean energy applications)

The deadline to apply is in February of 2008.
