Green Energy Challenge Competition
The ELECTRI International / NECA Green Energy Challenge marks a yearly highlight for NECA Student Chapters. Teams agree that the popular Challenge is stimulating because it makes them focus on problem solving by thinking in new, creative ways.
NECA Student Chapter teams demonstrate their ability to analyze particular electrical construction management “problems” outlined for them and create a comprehensive plan and budget for an appropriate retrofit.
A jury of contractors and industry partners evaluate written proposals. The top three student teams are then invited to the NECA Convention to make oral presentations of their project. The jury evaluates both the substance and the presentation.
Electrical construction companies and industry partners looking to hire the best and brightest students in the country appreciate the opportunity to assess the finalists’ work firsthand during the NECA Convention.
ELECTRI International provides financial awards to the winning school and assists with the cost of bringing the three finalist teams to the NECA Convention.
How to Participate in the Green Energy Challenge Competition
All NECA Student Chapters are eligible to enter the annual competition. Information about how to set up a NECA Student Chapter is available at http://www.electri.org/content/neca-student-chapters.
The online registration form for the Green Energy Challenge is available on the ELECTRI International website from mid-December to end of January each year.
