Scott Institute to host Allegheny Region Cleantech University Prize

The Allegheny Region Cleantech University Prize Collegiate Competition (Allegheny Cleantech UP) is sponsored by the Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) office and has selected a team led by Carnegie Mellon University’s Scott Institute for Energy Innovation to run one of eight university-focused clean energy technology competitions each year for the next three years.

The objectives of the project are to catalyze clean energy technology startups, support novel training and educational opportunities, and create a long-term sustained and diverse community to support clean energy student entrepreneurs in the Allegheny County region and beyond.

The team winning the regional competition will receive a $50,000 prize, and compete for additional awards at the national level.

The competition will take place during Carnegie Mellon’s Energy Week that will occur March 14-18, 2016. At this point, we expect the event to take place on Wednesday, March 16. The deadline for submission of statements of intent is likely to be January 18, 2016 with final submissions by February 15, 2016.
