About this event

To provide sustainable energy for all, we urgently need to enhance the efficiency and affordability of high performing appliances. The Efficiency for Access Design Challenge invites teams of university students to create affordable and high-performing off-grid appliances and supportive technologies. 

The Grand Final will showcase some of the amazing submissions we have received this year, as well as a prize giving ceremony awarding students with the most innovative designs. Featuring presentations from off-grid industry experts and a panel discussion; ‘how do we truly achieve inclusive energy access?’, it will give you the chance to hear insights into the future of the off-grid industry.

A link to the event will be provided on Monday 21 June 2021
