Student Design Challenge

To promote and celebrate new innovation in the Australian clean energy industry, the Clean Energy Council is holding a Student Design Challenge as part of the 2019 Australian Clean Energy Summit.

Students are required to design an item/suite of items to be utilised in the exhibition space of the Australian Clean Energy Summit. The design should incorporate sustainability in all aspects and proposed materials should be recyclable and sustainable.

Designs are to be submitted with a brief description (500 words) of the item(s) which explains:

  • the inspiration for the design
  • how the item(s) is intended to be used during the event (what is its purpose)
  • how the item could be used after the event so that it has a second life.

The application must also include:

  • a brief description (250 words) of the materials required to design the item(s)
  • a proposed budget for building/creating the item(s).

Designs may be submitted by individual students or student teams.

Designs will judged following the submission date, with the top three designs chosen to be featured at the event. Designs will be based on how effectively they meet the following key components.

The design must:

  • utilise sustainable materials
  • have a designated end of life use or be able to be effectively recycled (e.g. the item could be used in an office environment or featured in a student lounge area)
  • incorporate or reflect an aspect or focus of the summit (i.e. reference renewable forms of energy wind, solar or thermal)
  • be functional and be able to be utilised by delegates at the summit (e.g. could take the form of a lounge/seating area, a screen/room divider or a platform/screen/light box for poster presentations ).

The top three designs will be featured in the exhibition space at the summit. Students will receive free admission to the summit and networking drinks, presenting a unique opportunity to engage with industry experts and gain valuable exposure and experience.

Please submit your entry via the form below. Entries close on Friday 14 June 2019.
