2015 Global Innovation Contest for Future Solar Energy Solutions

2015 Global Innovation Contest for Future Solar Energy Solutions: In the competition participants from all over the world can share their ideas on how solar energy can be
innovatively integrated into Stockholm Royal Seaport. The solution should provide energy for functions within the city but also be a trademark of Stockholm Royal Seaport. The jury, consisting of experts within the area, will judge the entries on a variety of criteria, such as feasibility, visual appeal, cost-efficiency, innovativeness and longevity. 

The competition will be used to challenge participants to think creatively and to take advantage of the urban environment in order to clarify one of the city’s major challenges,
reducing resource consumption and climate impact, as well as visualizing it in an educational and aesthetic way, says Christina Salmhofer, Sustainability Manager for the City of Stockholm.

The winner of the competition will be awarded with 50 000 Swedish kronor and the possibility to see their idea become reality in Stockholm Royal Seaport.

Why use innovation challenges?
