A conversation between the Georgetown University Energy Prize Executive Director, Francis Slakey, and Project Director Christofer Nelson about the kick-off of this first-of-its-kind national competition for community energy efficiency.
The Georgetown University Energy Prize aims to rethink America’s energy use by harnessing the ingenuity and community spirit of towns and cities all across America. Over the course of a two-year period, the Prize will challenge small- to medium-size towns, cities, and counties to rethink their energy use, and implement creative strategies to increase efficiency. To compete for the Prize, local governments, residents, utilities, and others will need to work together to demonstrate success in sustainably reducing energy consumption.
