    I liked some of the idea presented here. I think this is a very good opportunity for all of us to compete and work hard to show our best innovative ideas. I think the ready award should be increased a little bit.

    This does not seem to be the same as the Solar prize submission with the 2500 word, four question summary. Is there a good example of that doc for style and tone?

      Hi Surj - we do not provide example documents for the technical narrative, only the template with directions and the framework for the technical narrative.

    Hello! On the submission template it says you may include up to 5 supporting images, is that per question or aggregate like the word limit? Thanks

    3d stacked silicone hyper cube ontop of the panel to refract the light multiple times into the same area, I call this the Time of Flight way to catch energy as energy in space time is 4th dimensional and possibly more, energy “in time” is useful.

    If a team is entered in the Solar Desalination Prize competition can it also enter this Solar Prize competition?
