Nimisha Varma and Naveen Suman from Rajasthan Technical University will represent India at the grand finale round of Schneider Electric’s global student competition, Go Green in the City, which will be held in Barcelona, Spain in October.
 
Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, annually organises its Go Green in the City competition inviting students around the world to submit their bold ideas of energy management and automation for a smarter and more sustainable future. On September 2, 2019, the company announced the list of 8 finalist teams composed of 16 students who will compete in the grand finale round in Barcelona, Spain in October.
 
The teams are from the USA, Brazil, Hong Kong, India, Philippines, UK, Turkey and Spain. Selected among 3,040 students that submitted ideas, these teams represent each of seven regions of the world participating in the competition. The winner of the special prize for a full female team, the “Women in Energy Award” also got a ticket to join the Global Final.
 
“We are excited to host young innovators in our Global Innovation Summit Barcelona. Together with our customers and partners, we look forward to listening to their bold ideas. It will be also their learning opportunity as they get to witness the latest digital transformation of energy management and automation,” commented Olivier Blum, Chief Human Resources Officer, Schneider.
 
The finalists are now preparing for the final phase of the competition: presenting their case study to an executive jury at the Innovation Summit which Schneider Electric organises in Barcelona for 3,500 industry professionals. The first-place winners will have a chance to work with Schneider Electric and will be taken on an all-inclusive trip to two cities of their choice, where Schneider Electric has offices.
 
“I learned that even though I was still in school, my ideas were valuable. The competition empowered my teammate and me to share our incredible ideas with people who could help us realise our meaningful purpose,” commented Angela Carver, one of 2018 global finalists and now an employee at Schneider Electric USA.
 
Launched in 2011, Go Green in the City offers students from engineering or business an opportunity to present their innovative ideas related to Schneider’s core business for a smart future.
 
Interest in Go Green in the City has grown exponentially with 113,000 student registrations and 18.8k+ ideas over the past 9 years. This year alone, Schneider Electric received more than 23,000 applications from 165 countries and over 3,000 projects submissions, a new record for the competition.
 
In 2020, the competition will celebrate its 10-year anniversary. The 10th edition will launch on October 2019 with a planned Grand Finale at Innovation Summit Las Vegas on June 2020. Interested students can pre-register at gogreeninthecity.se.com.
