    Drexel University has partnered to organize the Allegheny Region Cleantech University Prize Collegiate Competition (Allegheny Cleantech UP). The competition is sponsored by the Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) office. In June of 2015, DOE announced that a team led by Carnegie Mellon’s Scott Institute for Energy Innovation will run one of eight regional university-focused clean energy technology competitions each year for the next three years. The Scott Institute partners in co-hosting the competition are Innovation Works, Pittsburgh’s Energy Innovation Center, the Pittsburgh Technology Council, and the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Energy. The event’s advisory committee extends beyond the Pittsburgh area.

    The objectives of the project are to catalyze clean energy technology start-ups, support novel training and educational opportunities, and create a long-term sustained and diverse community to support clean energy student entrepreneurs in the Allegheny Region and beyond. The team winning the competition will receive a $50,000 prize, and compete for additional prizes 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 no later than December 2015 with final submissions by February 15, 2016.
