Energy Solutions for Sustainable Living

Tuesday, November 9, 2021

Conducted in partnership with the Duke University Energy Access Project and a different leading organization each year, our annual Case Competition engages emerging leaders on how to solve salient questions about our global energy future. In 2020, student teams from Yale University, the University of Michigan, and the University of San Francisco won a total of $15k for their answers to how Engro, Pakistan's leading energy provider, achieve both broadening energy access while increasing renewable energy deployment.

This year, our Case Competition has partnered with C-Quest Capital, a leading social impact investor and project developer that aims to provide sustainable energy solutions for communities with unreliable energy access. Participants will gain practical experience developing business models for one of C-Quest Capital's high-impact carbon finance projects to promote the distribution of sustainable biomass cooking fuels and related clean cooking technologies in Sub-Saharan Africa.  

Team registration closes September 10, 11:59 p.m. EDT. There is no fee to register. No late registrations will be accepted.
