All Day -
Launched in 2012, this contest challenges students from IDEA member institutions to create a short video (under 3 minutes) about their campus energy plant, focused on district energy, combined heat and power (CHP), and/or microgrids. The primary goal of the contest is to enhance general awareness among students of how their institutions' district energy systems and their operators provide a reliable, economic, efficient and environmentally sound means of heating, cooling and powering their campuses. By posting entries on the IDEA website, YouTube page and social media, submissions also help to educate the general public about district energy and its role in campus sustainability.
