TEC Energy Policy Challenge
This year, we are excited to introduce the first-ever Tufts Energy Conference Energy Policy Challenge. To showcase student research and generate thoughtful proposals for new energy policies, we are seeking memo-style policy papers on a variety of topics that align with the 2016 conference theme: The Geopolitics of Energy.
If you are passionate about the role that energy plays in economic development, politics, or the environment, or have an idea for how we can improve energy policy at home or abroad, then submit your proposal to the Tufts Energy Conference Energy Policy Challenge for the chance to win $500 and have your paper published!
The Energy Policy Challenge deadline has now passed. We look forward to announcing the winner at this year's conference!

The Hitachi Center Energy Innovation Competition
The Tufts Energy Conference is proud to present the annual Hitachi Center Energy Innovation Competition. The goal of the Hitachi Center Energy Innovation Competition, made possible by the generous support of the Hitachi Center, is to support students to implement projects that explore solutions to key energy issues, inspire interdisciplinary research and collaboration at Tufts, and provide greater visibility of Tufts engagement in energy-related disciplines and fields. For the second year, we are excited to be partnering with the Tufts $100K New Ventures Competition.
Do you have a great energy idea? Are you working on a project related to energy? The Tufts Energy Innovation Competition is looking for your innovative ideas for solving the world’s pressing energy problems.
Applications for the 2016 Energy Innovation Competition have closed. We look forward to announcing the winner!
2015 Competition Results
Three projects were advanced into the Hitachi Center Energy Innovation Competition finals,
chosen by the 2015 selection panel. Congratulations to Colibri (formerly known as SolarRoute) on their victory! Colibri is a solar social enterprise that bridges the last mile gap to alleviate energy poverty in Latin America—those living in geographic and economic isolation without access to resources and information to lift themselves out of poverty.
