Case Competition

The United States Association for Energy Economics (USAEE) Case Competition is a team-based competition focused on energy economics, open to teams of current students. Participating teams will work on the designated case problem over a period of three weeks and submit a written report detailing their methods and solution to USAEE. A complete solution to the problem will require teams to have knowledge in economics, engineering, and policy analysis. The three teams with the best solutions will be invited to present their results at a session at the November 3-6, 2019, 37th USAEE/IAEE North American Conference in Denver, CO.

By participating in the USAEE Case Competition, students can demonstrate their skills and ideas for potential employers and can win monetary prizes while contributing to solutions for challenging current energy economics issues. The prizes for the three teams invited to present at the Denver, CO, conference are $2,500 for the first place team, $2,000 for second place, and $1,500 for third. In addition, all conference fees for the November 3-6, 2019, 37th USAEE/IAEE North American Conference in Denver, CO, will be waived for up to two members of each invited team. Prizes are sponsored by the King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center (KAPSARC).

This year, the competition is open to student members of USAEE or IAEE from all over the world. Selected teams will be responsible for making their own travel arrangements to Denver, CO.
