Clean Energy Competition

Have an idea for developing new energy technologies?

Want to show off UVa’s entrepreneurial talent?

As part of the Obama Administration’s effort to support the next generation of American clean energy entrepreneurs, the Department of Energy is offering $2 million to student-entrepreneurs for new clean energy solutions.  These funds will be awarded through a series of five regional competitions around the country.
Students at UVa and other universities in the Southeast are invited to compete in the ACC Clean Energy Challenge.  The winner of this challenge will receive a $100,000 prize and compete in the DOE National Clean Energy Business Plan Finals in Washington, D.C., in summer 2012.
