Energy competition for students
October 2, 2009, 12:10 CEST
Students from universities in Norway are invited to develop a roadmap towards the global future energy realities taking into account the increasing demand for energy, as well as the urgent need to limit greenhouse gas emissions.
“By setting up an open forum for future energy ideas developed by young minds, we can create a road to a more environmentally conscious energy future,” says Trude Sundset, Vice President, Environment and Climate.
Each team of entrants must submit a proposal in English of no more than 3,000 words that can be accompanied by any multimedia support through www.facebook.com/energy2050.
A qualified panel of judges will review entries and select up to three finalists. Concepts will be judged on the basis of quality, realism, creativity and depth of the final product.
Three finalists will be announced during November 2009 and will work further on their projects with the support of dedicated mentors from StatoilHydro during spring 2010. The winner of the competition will be announced during the late spring of 2010.
- First prize: an offshore trip.
- The two runners-up will be offered a visit to a StatoilHydro site such as
- Utsira or Kårstø to experience energy realities.
- All three finalists will be given an iPhone.
