Elemental Excelerator, a leading non-profit investor focused on scaling climate solutions and social impact for all communities, has been selected as the Hawaii/Pacific Island Regional Partner for the Department of Energy’s EnergyTech University Prize or EnergyTech UP. The call for university student teams to submit proposals focused on sustainable energy is currently active, with an application deadline of Jan. 26, 2023 at 5:59 p.m. Hawaii time (11:59 p.m. Eastern).

The EnergyTech UP competition awards $370,000 in cash prizes for student teams that successfully identify a promising energy technology, assess its market potential, and create a business plan for commercialization. Pacific Islands include Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. One regional winner will receive $3,000 and move on to the national competition.

“We are honored to have been selected by the U.S. Department of Energy to inspire and facilitate submissions in our region,” said Elemental’s Director of External Affairs Tiffany Huynh. “The enthusiasm around this nationwide contest underscores the opportunity and need to identify energy technologies that are poised to change the future climate landscape — especially here in the Pacific where we see the effects of climate change on our communities, from the high cost of energy to homes and businesses affected by rising sea levels.”
