May 24, 2011 – Siemens is holding a worldwide contest to identify five top sustainable business or technology proposals “to help the world become a better place”. The five contestants with the best ideas will be awarded $21,000 and a trip to Berlin, Germany, to meet with Siemens smart grid experts. The company says it has also committed to providing more than over $1.5 million to translate the participants’ best ideas into reality.

The contest is accepting proposals through June 15, 2011, so you’d better hurry. The ideas are posted online where people can review and comment openly. Proposals can cover any topic or aspect of energy use and management including creation, distribution, transmission, storage or utilization. Candidates get the opportunity to receive feedback and exposure from people all over the world.
