Join university students from around the world by virtually competing in real-world energy challenges and developing potential solutions.
The Switch International Energy Case Competition (SIECC) will challenge and make you think critically about how the world can transition to a sustainable, equitable energy future.
You do not need to have technical experience or knowledge. Instead, the Case Competition places a premium on multidisciplinary solutions, and is appropriate for students pursuing any academic discipline. There is no entry fee.
The Faculty Advisory Council (FAC) is a group of diverse academic professionals who represent a broad range of departmental foci and geographic demographics, who can help build SEA's outreach to universities (domestically and internationally), recruit teams, mentors, and judges for the Case Competition, and communicate the opportunity to other faculty members around the world (and to encourage fellow faculty to consider including the Case Competition in their course curricula). In addition, the FAC will be approached as needed to advise SEA core staff on Case Competition logistical details and the design of the annual prompt. This newly formed council meets quarterly with the Case Competition team via Zoom to discuss program status.
The third annual Switch International Energy Case Competition focused on financing solutions to energy poverty in Colombia, Ghana and Myanmar.
The second annual Switch International Energy Case Competition (SIECC) focused on financing solutions to energy poverty in Nepal, Nicaragua and South Sudan.
The first annual Switch International Energy Case Competition (SIECC) focused on energy poverty in Haiti, The Democratic Republic of Congo and Papua New Guinea.
SEA assisted the Venezuelan American Petroleum Association with an energy case competition called Venezuela - Energy Solutions for the Future.
