Over the past two years, more than 1,050 teams representing 2,100 candidates from nine countries (Germany, France, Turkey, Poland, the United States, India, China, Russia and Brazil) participated in the competition. This success shows the global attractiveness of Schneider Electric to a young and increasingly female audience, and their growing interest and involvement in energy issues all over the world.
The top 100 teams will advance in the competition with a Schneider Electric mentor. After they are trimmed down to 25, the remaining will travel to Paris courtesy of Schneider Electric. Each finalist will earn an internship interview and even a job offer. The winning team will be selected among the remaining applicants and get to a trip around the world.
Encouraged by the success of the two previous editions of Go Green in the City, Schneider Electric decided to open the challenge to 10 more countries, thus bringing the total number of countries covered by this 2013 edition to 19.
The new countries will include Mexico, Canada, as well as eight countries from the East Asia region (Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, Korea, and Taiwan).
Energy has become scarce and expensive. To meet growing consumer demands, the energy management sector has to reinvent itself with smarter, greener solutions. As a global specialist in energy management, Schneider Electric has the vision, the portfolio, and the commitment to make the most of the energy innovation opportunities.
Enter for a chance to revolutionize energy management and gain a unique insight into one of the leading energy management companies. Deadline for students to send their proposed pitch is on 3 March 2013.
