Have you been innovating in clean energy? This India-US competition is looking for just that
Once again, students and startups have an opportunity to showcase innovations in the use of renewable energy.
The innovations can be in the area of agriculture, urban housing, transportation, industrial process, and water and sewage treatment. IIT-Madras and the US consulate have joined hands to encourage such innovations which can prove to be in the larger good of the country.
Successful entries will be divided into teams that will undergo six months of training from US and Indian mentors. Tamil Nadu Energy Development Agency chairman Jag Mohan Singh Raju launched the competition on the IIT Madras campus on Thursday.
Students and early-stage entrepreneurs must submit a video or a PowerPoint presentation on their solutions and a two-page concept paper.
Experts will evaluate the innovations and will divide those eligible into 25 teams of five members each.
The teams, to be mentored by American and Indian experts, will develop prototypes with financial assistance from the organising committee.
IIT-M will hold a demonstration in December, when the innovators will demonstrate solutions to experts and others.
If you have been innovating in the area of clean energy, here’s your chance of taking it to the next level.
