By joining this HTPD competition, a participant is expected to get:

    • Participatory training on PES humanitarian technology project design.
    • Feedback on his/her project design and learn important aspects of various projects.
    • Certificate of participation and best project-design prizes. (if selected in top five positions.)

Project Areas

Any project related to the broad areas of power and energy, which involves humanitarian technology and sustainable development can be chosen for this competition.
