The Energy in Emerging Markets Case Competition (EEMCC) engages diverse and creative teams to address real energy challenges affecting the developing world. The one-day competition connects students, academia, and industry in pursuit of unconventional business-based solutions that expose unrecognized opportunities with positive social and environmental impact. This year's competition will take place on November 10, 2020 with $15,000 in prizes!

The 2019 Case Competition focused on Aspire Power Solutions (APS), based in Lagos, Nigeria. APS develops intelligent hybrid solar systems for residential, small business, and C&I customers.
