An informational webinar will be held on September 14, 2021 to discuss the details of the 2022 Geothermal Collegiate Competition.

The Geothermal Technologies Office of the US Department of Energy has announced the Class of 2022 Geothermal Collegiate Challenge. This is another competition under the American-Made Challenges program and will be done in partnership with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).

The Geothermal Collegiate Competition invites participation by teams of at least three students enrolled in accredited U.S.-based collegiate institutions or U.S. citizens enrolled at non-U.S. based collegiate institutions. In this case, “collegiate institution” refers to any school of post-secondary or higher education, including but not limited to community colleges, technical colleges, and traditional four-year and graduate-level universities. There is no cost to register or participate.

The 2021 iteration of the Geothermal Collegiate Competition was won by the University of North Dakota with Reykjavik University for their proposal to use existing gas wells to generate geothermal heat and energy in Dakota. We reported on the complete results of the competition.

An informational webinar for the competition will be held online on September 14, 2021 at 9 PM CEST. Interested participants may register via Zoom through this link.
