ELECTRI Rolls Out 2015 Green Energy Challenge
As of June 18, 2018

ELECTRI International’s 2015 Green Energy Challenge, connecting hundreds of students with NECA Members and Chapters, will focus on the development of a back-up power system and resiliency plan for an existing facility with demonstrated critical power needs.

Student teams will conduct an energy assessment of a building of their choosing on campus or in their community. The technical analysis will include: (1) energy benchmarking and critical load analysis, (2) efficiency upgrades that may reduce critical load demand, (3) the introduction of a back-up power supply/micro grid solution for part or all of the facility.

Interested NECA Student Chapter Teams must register their intent to join the 2015 competition by 5:00 PM Eastern Time on Thursday, January 29, 2015. Pre-proposals will be due on March 9th and full proposals must be submitted by April 20th. Finalists will be selected and announced on July 30th. These finalist teams will be guests of ELECTRI International at the October 3 – 6 NECA National Convention in San Francisco at which their oral presentations will be judged and the winner announced.
