As part of today’s American-Made Earth Day Celebration, hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy and the American-Made program, we announced that Stage 2 of the CABLE Conductor Manufacturing Prize is now open! Applications are now being accepted for this exciting stage, which is open to any eligible entity, regardless of whether they competed in Stage 1.

All interested teams are encouraged to begin by reading the official rules document, brainstorming your ideas, and preparing your submission. Teams will be required to provide written and visual elements outlining their concept for an affordable, breakthrough material that is technically feasible to manufacture and enables impactful applications. Samples of the material and sample testing data will also be required. The CABLE Prize will pay for the testing of all competitor samples regardless of if they won Stage 1 or not. To take advantage of the free Stage 2 testing, competitors must submit a HeroX registration form no later than August 25 at 5 p.m. ET. See below for important dates. 

If you have questions, please reach out to us on the Forum, or register now for our CABLE Prize Informational Webinar on May 17 at 3 p.m. ET.

We're looking forward to learning more about your innovative ideas!
