ENERGIZE - The clean Energy Challenge

The main aim is to develop products or methods to harness the largely untapped Ocean and Geothermal Energies. However, there is no restriction whatsoever. Innovations are also invited in any other form of renewable/clean energy or improvement in existing products and methods.

Techfest, Annual Science and Technology festival of IIT Bombay is a nonprofit organization managed by students. It has been taking several initiatives for addressing environmental and social causes. Since its inception in 1998, Techfest has been organizing bigger and better events every year which leaves a lasting impact on every single visitor which has enabled us to have a tag of 'Asia's biggest Science and Technology Festival'


As a part of our initiatives, we conduct Energize, which in its third incarnation has grown huge in terms of participation and most importantly the quality of ideas. It is an attempt to address the biggest environmental challenges the earth faces today. The main aim is to develop products or methods to harness the largely untapped Ocean and Geothermal Energies. However, there is no restriction whatsoever. Innovations are also invited in any other form of renewable/clean energy or improvement in existing products and methods.

Mentorship is the unique feature of Energize which makes it different from our other competitions. Our mentors are the most knowledgeable intellectuals from elite educational institutes and industries. Teams can become beneficiary of this opportunity by submitting an abstract on their idea latest by 29th August, 2010.

Participants unable to submit their abstracts by 29th September 2010 or those who haven't been shortlisted for mentor allocation can still participate by sending us a detailed technical report along with the video by 14th November 2010 (which is the last date for registration).

The competition is open to all (students, research scholars and professionals).

Panasonic - The HIT® high performance advantage

Panasonic - The HIT® high performance advantage

Heterojunction technology minimizes electron loss - Thin amorphous silicon layers reduce electron carrier loss to minimal levels. The result is a remarkably high-efficiency solar cell that produces Greater long-term energy output. Innovative pyramid structure absorbs more sunlight - A uniquely effective pyramid structure optimizes sunlight capture. By reducing outward reflection and directing sun rays inward to the cell, HIT absorbs more sunlight and generates more electricity for your home. Dual-sided cells multiply energy output - Advanced bifacial cells work in concert with the pyramid structure to multiply solar power output exponentially. Available sunlight is captured from both sides of the panel, converting more sunlight into electricity.
