Switch Energy Alliance and the Hildebrand Department of Petroleum & Geosystems Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin will host the International Switch Energy Case Competition. The virtual competition will feature self-formed teams of three to four university students competing for US$10,000 in prize money as they develop solutions to an energy poverty-based prompt.
Team members can be from different universities, countries, or even continents. This is a virtual event where remote communication will be widely used, so it does not matter where team members are located. Undergraduate and graduate degree students from any major and of any year are eligible to compete; however, each team must have at least two students pursuing a bachelor's degree.
The teams have three weeks to research the issue, create a PowerPoint, and film a 10-minute video explaining their solution. The PowerPoint and video are submitted and judges then review the PowerPoint and video presentations. The top five teams advance to the Finals where they virtually compete via a live video conference format shown throughout the world.
In addition, the Competition is seeking energy professionals to remotely act as Mentors and Judges. Energy professionals from all energy fields, countries, and organizations (business, academic, government, nonprofit, etc.) are welcome.
If you would like to be a Mentor or Judge or have any questions about the International Switch Energy Case Competition, email Bill Hays at email@example.com.
In addition to giving lectures around the world, Dr. Scott Tinker has made guest appearances on several energy-related podcasts.
