About EBL Competition
Cited from ieee.org, “The EBL competition was launched in 2018 as a biennial global event to help teams around the world develop energy access solutions that could provide economically viable and scalable solutions for communities with average incomes of lower than US$2 per day. It was felt that regional teams would know their community needs and be able to offer viable solutions to improve their productivity and livelihood. Starting with 475 registered teams, 82 teams progressed to compete in one of five regional rounds held in Pacific Asia, South Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas where 23 teams were selected to field-test their solutions and compete in the Global Final.
The competition was conceptualized by the IEEE Power Electronics Society and its volunteers and staff, with strong support from many regional sponsors and for the Global Final the sponsors include, Kehua Technologies, On Semiconductors, Southern Company, Vicor, Sungrow Technology, Texas Instruments and partners, The Center for Distributed Energy at the Georgia Institute of Technology and the IEEE Foundation.”
