This is my first time doing a case competition oriented around business and consulting. I don’t have much economics background, but I think I was really able to apply my background in energy policy and familiarity with certain energy technologies and systems like energy management systems and micro grid infrastructure into this project. Discovering the applications of different energy technologies to all sorts of industries both in private and public sectors really just goes to show how complex and nuanced sustainability and energy are. They really need solutions from all fields, from all disciplines. There’s so many really interesting ways that you can find synergies between those different solutions and systems.”
