Join the Energy & Climate Club and Phoenix Sustainability Initiative in learning about their upcoming Climate Case Competition.

The case competition—set at the intersection between business, data science, and energy—provides students with the opportunity to critically investigate a modern-day problem posed by the competition partner Marathon Capital. Case teams will need to provide a realistic, well-developed, and research-backed solution that can be implemented by Marathon. They may do so by choosing an approach that uses either qualitative analysis, using preexisting data or findings to support the proposed solution, or quantitative analysis, engendering new findings through analyzing the novel data set to support the proposed solution.

The competition is sponsored by the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago (EPIC).
