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.

To enter, you or your team should register at www.accnrg.org.

Key Dates and Steps:

23 March 2012      Executive Summary (3 pages) and an Investor Video Pitch (3-5 minutes) due.  (During this preliminary round, students compete with other teams from their university.)

10 April   Teams notified of advancement to Southeast Regional Competition.

20 April        Full Commercialization Plans due.

24-25 April    Fifteen teams gather at the University of Maryland to make 20-minute presentations and compete for top prizes.

Green Energy Portal Launched

Green Energy Portal Launched for Quick Public Access to Renewable Energy Research

Oak Ridge, TN Green energy-related research and development (R&D) results are now more easily accessible through a new online portal, DOE Green Energy.  The free public portal was launched on the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) within the Office of Science.  The site is designed to ease access to green energy R&D information for use by researchers, scientists, educators, students and the general public.  Researchers can use the DOE Green Energy portal to speed scientific discovery and innovation; business and industry can use the R&D to stimulate economic growth related to renewable energy.  Educators, students, and the public can discover applications of renewable energy science and energy efficiency best practices.  The portal provides technical documents from thousands of R&D projects conducted at DOE National Laboratories and by DOE-funded awards at universities.

DOE Green Energy contains both current and historical research, including bibliographic citations, technical reports and patent information on different types of renewable energy resources and energy conservation.  Subject areas include but are not limited to solar, wind, bioenergy, hydroelectric, geothermal, tidal and wave power, and energy storage.

An easy-to-use search box allows users to selectively download, at no cost, DOE bibliographic citations and associated detailed full-text research reports and patents focusing on renewable energy and energy efficiency science and technology.  The website also includes a news feed provided by the DOE Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy program.
