Schneider Electric has launched the 9th edition of its ultimate global student competition in sustainable cities – Go Green in the City 2019.
The challenge is to solve one of four real-life case challenges within energy management or submit your bold idea for efficient energy management in a city environment.
The winning team will win job offers from Schneider Electric, and an all-inclusive international trip to two cities of their choice (where Schneider Electric has offices). The Top 8 teams will be invited on a fully sponsored trip to the Schneider Electric Global Innovation Summit in Barcelona to pitch for the Grand Prize.
Go Green in the City 2018 includes the following five competition categories:
- Sustainability & Access to Energy — Digitize Schneider Electric’s business and enable access to energy or sustainable developments

The competition is open for students from around the world who are willing to put their skills and ideas to the test.
