ELECTRI Announces Focus for 2015 Green Energy Challenge
As of March 24, 2017
December 7, 2014
ELECTRI International - The Foundation for Electrical Construction has announced that 7th Green Energy Challenge (GEC) competition will launch in January 2015. The 2015 Green Energy Challenge (GEC) will focus on the development of a back-up power system and resiliency plan for an existing facility with demonstrated critical power needs.
Teams will be given more freedom to select a facility type on their campus or in their community. Due to the competition’s focus on resiliency, each team should seek a building with critical loads that would benefit from back-up power supply via micro grid (energy storage + on site power generation - solar, CHP, Fuel Cell).
The competition schedule is noted below to help NECA Student Chapter Advisors and teams begin their preparations.
