All entries must be received by IDEA no later than 5:00 pm EST on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 2015.
First introduced in 2012, this contest challenges students from IDEA member institutions to create a short video (under 3 minutes) about their campus energy plant, focused on district energy and/or combined heat and power. When creating these videos, students are to consider:
What is unique about your campus district energy system?
What makes district energy so efficient?
How does district energy play a role in the sustainability efforts being made on your campus?
What are the roles and responsibilities of personnel who operate and maintain these systems?
Winners are announced at the IDEA Campus Energy Conference and cash prizes (Grand Prize $500, Second Place $250, Third Place $100) are awarded to the top three entries. Submissions are reviewed by a special committee of IDEA members.
