Student Video Competition
Submit a Smart Grid video for a chance to win $500!
We invite students to submit a video presenting fresh and original views, which may stimulate the research community. In particular, we welcome short videos (duration: 1 to max. 3 minutes), which present original visions in either one of the following two categories:
- Explain innovative smart grid concepts: Dream up new applications, user interfaces, technologies, scenario’s enabling, or enabled by, smart grids. These should be at least conceptually explained; providing some technical solutions is not mandatory, but can be a plus. For example, describe a new smart phone app that allows to monitor your energy profile and provide incentives to reduce your energy usage (or stimulates use of “green energy” coming from renewable sources).
- Showcase benefits of smart grids: i.e. why do we believe smart grids are necessary, what challenges do smart grid concepts/technologies solve, etc.? For example, provide some quantification of energy requirements for electrical car charging and an how to deal with it using an appropriate control mechanism. Read more
