We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the innovators who entered the challenge. This unique challenge not only pushed innovators to think about breakthrough energy solutions, but to design an XPRIZE competition that could attract the very best ideas from around the world to address this goal. This is hard stuff! And we saw the ambition, the creativity, the struggle, and the audacity reflected in the design submissions we received. We received 28 submissions, and our evaluators selected four to receive Prizes. Altogether, there were so many other insightful solutions and dedicated wiki contributors, and we are confident that many of the innovators in this challenge will do great things in the future in the pursuit of clean energy. Thank you all for helping make this challenge a success.


What happens next? HeroX and XPRIZE celebrate the Prize winners, but also want to ensure that the collection of ideas submitted in this competition are used to maximum benefit. HeroX and XPRIZE will make the winning designs, the Wiki, and the other design submissions available to the XPRIZE Abundant Clean Energy Visioneers team. This team has embarked on a detailed prize design and impact proposal development process that will run through October 2017. The designs, data, and momentum of this Design Challenge will be a valuable resource for that effort. Stay tuned!


We would also like to thank all our supporters, partners, evaluators, commenters and anyone else who in any way contributed to our challenge community. Without you, we would not have had the challenge that we did.
