The three finalists in the #BrightMindsChallenge for the most promising solar and energy storage solutions have been announced. Find out who they are.
IT’S TIME TO START A REVOLUTION
Did you know that just 18 days of sunshine could replace all of our planet’s energy reserves of coal, oil and natural gas? By harnessing this free and renewable energy, we can end the world’s dependence on harmful fossil fuels and head off the worst projected effects of climate change.
We need to find and scale up the most promising solar and energy storage solutions. That’s the challenge we’ve taken on in the first-ever Bright Minds Challenge: getting the world to 100% renewable energy, faster. And we need your help.
