The American-Made Solar Prize Round 2 teams have been working hard over the past few months preparing to pitch their technology at Set! Demo Day. Due to current social distancing guidance, original plans to host a live event with Carnegie Mellon University at CMU Energy Week 2020 have shifted to incorporate virtual presentations.

The new event format includes:

  • A video pitch from each of the 20 teams
  • A private Q&A session between each team and a panel of expert reviewers
  • A live finalist announcement, taking place on Monday, March 30, 2020.

The Solar Prize team also invites friends, family, peers, industry experts, and anyone interested in solar innovation to join the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory on Monday, March 30, at 3:30 p.m. ET for the live finalist announcement. Dr. Becca Jones-Albertus, director of the Solar Office, will announce which teams advance to the final phase of competition, each earning $100,000 in cash prizes and $75,000 in support vouchers.
