Energy in Emerging Markets Case Competition
Energy students from top schools across the country competed at Duke Nov. 7 to offer solutions for Kenya’s emerging energy market as part of the Energy in Emerging Markets Case Competition. The competition, now in its sixth year, connects students, academia and industry in pursuit of unconventional business-based solutions that expose unrecognized opportunities with positive social and environmental impact. For this year’s case competition, participants helped M-KOPA’s leadership team shape the off-grid regulatory landscape in Kenya and assess the company’s business model. The Nicholas institute for Environmental Policy Solutions Tim Profeta helped to judge the competition. The University of Pennsylvania - Wharton School of Business team took home the $10,000 prize, funded by the Energy Access Project (the project is funded by a gift from James E. and M.A. Rogers).
