How Does It Work?

The Overall View

Teams submit their clean energy idea/technology into one of three categories. Over the course of two months, teams will be judged and mentored by a set of industry professionals. The track entry price sums to $1,000. Each category will have one winner ($35,000), and one team will win the MIT Eversource Clean Energy Grand Prize ($200,000) and the MIT DOE EERE Prize ($75,000).


Who Should Enter?

Team Eligibility

Teams must be comprised of at least two individuals, and half of the team must be enrolled as students at a U.S. university. Teams that have secured more than $100,000 in capital before entering are ineligible to compete.
