The Energy Innovation Contest 2016-17
for Rutgers New Brunswick Undergraduate Students
Sponsored by The Rutgers Energy Institute
The Rutgers Energy Institute (REI) is hosting its annual energy competition intended to engage students in devising creative and innovative solutions in reducing energy at Rutgers. "Energy Innovation" is the challenge for this 2017 competition.
One goal of the Rutgers Energy Institute is to work with students, faculty and staff across the campus complex to reduce our carbon-footprint and make significant strides towards a carbon neutral university.
To develop an implementable plan reducing student energy consumption on campus as well as promoting awareness about smarter eco-friendly practices across campus. Students must demonstrate how energy can be conserved by creating innovative solutions to common energy expenditures.
Three awards ($2,500 for first place, $1,500 for second place, and $1,000 for third place) will be awarded to undergraduate students or teams who have submitted energy reduction plans selected to be the most innovative, practical, and low-cost solutions by a panel composed of faculty chosen by the REI Advisory Board.
