About the Solar District Cup

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Solar District Cup Collegiate Design Competition challenges teams to assume the role of a solar-plus-storage developer as they design and model systems for a campus or urban district. These systems integrate solar, storage, and other distributed energy capabilities across mixed-use districts. The three top competition teams will each give an 8-minute project pitch as they vie for your vote to determine the Project Pitch champion. 

The Solar District Cup is administered by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in partnership with the Energy Department Solar Energy Technology Office, Aurora Solar, Solar Power Events, and HeatSpring. The 2021 competition district use cases are provided by City of Denver and Auraria Higher Education Center, University of Central Florida, and the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. Up to three dozen teams from around the country are expected to compete in the final Class of 2021 competition. 

Don’t miss this chance to see the best and brightest students shaping the future of solar in this live virtual event. Join the Solar District Cup Class of 2021 Pitch Championship to vote for your favorite of the three vying teams to become the Project Pitch Champion!
