The Challenge, part of National Inventors Month in August this year, will award cash and other prizes for the most innovative low-cost, alternative energy-related solutions, products or technologies.

A quarter of the world’s population lives without any form of electricity. Lack of access to electricity or power contributes to poverty, malnutrition, disease and death. It’s a vicious cycle, and one that can be alleviated through innovation and creative use of low-cost technology.

U.S. college and college-bound students are eligible for this contest – age restrictions apply.

Students are invited to submit videos – 2-minute “elevator pitches” – through our Web 2.0 platform at, ensuring IP protection and preserving potential licensing opportunities.
