The 2013 National Geothermal Student Competition, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, is designed to advance the understanding of geothermal energy as a valued resource by promoting innovation, exploration, and entrepreneurship among the nation’s colleges and universities. The Competition seeks to engage students in a collaborative exercise to develop a business plan for developing a geothermal enterprise. Applicants are encouraged to consider a candidate resource in their home state/region, though convincing plans for any domestic target will be considered.

Team requirements

Student teams should include:

  • No more than five members
  • Undergraduate and/or graduate students, but no more than 50% of the team can be graduate students
  • Representatives from at least two academic departments (e.g., geosciences, engineering, economics, business, etc.)
  • One or more academic institutions
  • A team sponsor (can be a postdoc, teaching fellow, professor and/or faculty member)
  • A team leader (selected by team members as the group’s point of contact)
