Welcome to the EnergyTech University Prize (EnergyTech UP) 2022-2023! The next edition of the student competition is coming this fall. Follow the competition on this HeroX channel for updates on the next round!


We’re gearing up for the next iteration of EnergyTech UP, brought to you by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Technology Transitions. Like the first round of competition, EnergyTech UP is a collegiate competition challenging multidisciplinary student teams to develop and present a business plan that leverages DOE national laboratory-developed and other high-potential energy technologies. The competition awards cash prizes to teams that successfully identify an energy technology, assess its market potential, and propose a strategy for commercialization.

Prize programming will start in fall 2022 with an informational webinar and updated rules. The opportunity to register as a competitor is now open and will close in January 2023. This HeroX channel is EnergyTech UP’s official platform and is where you’ll find competition rules, updates, and a public forum.
