The Department of Energy has issued a Federal Register Notice announcing the administration of a four-part prize competition titled "American Energy Data Challenge." The goal of this competition is to introduce the public to the open data and resources offered by DOE, to solicit feedback about the data, its organization and presentation, to spur the creation of new tools and insights for the American public, and to solicit public input on how energy generation, distribution and use could be transformed to better serve our 21st century society and economy.
The first part, the Energy Ideas Challenge, will be conducted from Nov. 6 through Nov. 29, 2013. The Federal Register Notice includes anticipated dates for three additional challenges: Apps for Energy II, Energy Data by Design, and the American Energy Challenge.
