The National Clean Energy Business Plan Competition was open to technologies developed at U.S. universities and the National Laboratories, led by students, and nearly 300 teams entered from around the country. The final presentations were the culmination of six regional competitions that were organized by the California Institute of Technology, University of Colorado (Boulder), Clean Energy Trust, Rice University, University of Maryland, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The awards were presented on Wednesday, June 13th at the White House by Deputy Secretary of Energy Daniel Poneman.

“We congratulate these talented student-led finalists who each won their respective regional clean energy competitions with their unique technologies,” said James F. Groelinger, Executive Director of the Clean Energy Alliance. “They represent some of the most innovative and promising clean energy start-ups in the country, and CEA members look forward to guiding them on the path to successful commercialization. ”

Each of the finalists will be matched with a CEA member that can best serve their needs based on the startup’s technology, priorities, and stage of development, among other factors. The incubation services could include guidance on technical, financial, marketing and/or manufacturing aspects of their businesses, as well as introductions to potential investors and assistance with their business plans and applications for grants. These services will be valued at up to $12,000 per recipient, and the fees for the services will be paid directly to the CEA member incubator from the DOE-CEA Partnership in accordance with the Partnership guidelines.
