Mobilizing Technology and Business Models to Close the Energy Gap

Globally, 1.1 billion people around the world lack basic electricity, and billions more lack access to the reliable, affordable, and sustainable energy systems that form the backbone of job creation and broader economic growth. How this shortfall is addressed over the coming decades will have resounding impacts on broader development outcomes, the environment, and U.S. and global security. The Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, the Duke University Office of Undergraduate Education, and the Energy Access Project at Duke University will host the 2019 Winter Forum "Mobilizing Technology and Business Models to Close the Energy Gap" on Sunday, January 6, 2019, to Tuesday, January 8, 2019. 

From solar and batteries to telecom and mobile money, technology is enabling new approaches and business models for solving the energy access challenge. Duke students can apply to scale-up their knowledge, sharpen their story-telling, and unleash their creativity in a competition for solutions to end global energy poverty. Applications are accepted August 27 to October 5 (deadline extended).
