Clean Energy Exchange

The Student Challenge, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, is for students at colleges and universities from the six state Midwest region who are interested in developing a clean energy business. CET administers the competition, which provides mentorship to each of the state winners and prize money to the companies with technologies that can most successfully be brought to the marketplace.
