The 2021 Case Competition is underway, with several teams now preparing their case for evaluation. Winners will be announced October 8, with the two top teams presenting their work at the USAEE/IAEE North American Conference, November 1 & 2, and receive cash prizes.
Prizes are provided by long-term sponsor, the King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center (KAPSARC). In addition to KAPSARC's participation, we are proud to announce that the newly-formed Saudi Association of Energy Economics (SAEE) has joined the evaluation committee for the case competition.
The Case Competition is a team-based competition focused on energy economics, open to teams of current students. Participating teams work on the designated case problem over a period of one month and submit a written report detailing their methods and solution to USAEE/SAEE evaluation committee. A complete solution to the problem requires teams to have knowledge in economics, engineering, and policy analysis. The two teams with the best solutions will present their results at USAEE/IAEE North American Conference.
