Energy Innovation Case Competition

Wednesday, February 5

The 5th Annual Energy Innovation Case Competition hosted by NAPE and the TCU Neeley School of Business will take place on Feb. 5, 2025. The in-person case competition will be in Houston during NAPE Summit. Each year we invite MBA and undergrad students from the best business schools in the world to prove their innovation and intelligence in the energy industry for a well-known energy company. The sponsor company identifies an issue they need an innovative technology-based solution in order to solve. Teams participate and prepare virtually on the case and present to industry expert judges that are leaders in the sector. The top 4 teams win $40K in prizes — the largest prize of any collegiate case competition. The final four teams will present their case findings/solution at the 2025 NAPE Summit.
