Ohio Clean Energy Challenge 2014

Jan 29, 2014 8:00 AM to Jan 29, 2014 5:00 PM
The Student Center at Cleveland State University


The 2014 Ohio Clean Energy Challenge is being postponed until February 27-28. More information will be distributed in the coming weeks. We sincerely regret any inconvenience and look forward to a successful competition next month. 

We have been informed that due to health and safety concerns related to predicted extremely cold temperatures on Tuesday, January 28 and Wednesday, January 29, there is a high probability that the Cleveland State University campus will be closed.

NorTech and UCEAO share the same safety concerns for the participants and attendees of the 2014 Ohio Clean Energy Challenge. Recognizing that weather conditions may change in the interim, we nevertheless believed that it was prudent to make a decision regarding the event by close of business today. 

Thank you for your continued support of this important event.


The Ohio Clean Energy Challenge brings together some of Ohio’s best and brightest college students to compete for $10,000 to support their clean energy business.

Presented by the University Clean Energy Alliance of Ohio (UCEAO) and NorTech, the 2014 Ohio Clean Energy Challenge is a clean energy student business plan competition designed to provide student entrepreneurs with the opportunity to showcase their energy technology and business plans; receive university and industry support and feedback; gain exposure within the venture capital and funding community; and compete for cash prizes to support their technology and business plan.

On *(Jan. 29), the 10 semi-finalist student teams will present live business pitches to a panel of judges comprised of clean energy entrepreneurs, investors and business leaders. The winner of the Ohio Competition will receive the $10,000 state prize and go on to compete for the $100,000 grand prize at the Midwest regional competition on April 3, 2014, in Chicago, Ill., and a place in the national competition in Washington, D.C.
