    What is the E-ROBOT Prize? 

    Existing energy-efficient retrofit methods are often disruptive to homeowners or building occupants and pose potential health and safety hazards to construction workers. By pairing robotic experts with building scientists, the E-ROBOT Prize is uncovering holistic solutions to allow workers to safely reach places or perform activities that were previously impossible. 

    E-ROBOT Demo Day and the live announcement of winners mark the end of the two-stage, $5 million prize that launched in November 2020. As part of the American-Made Challenges family, the E-ROBOT Prize is directed and administered by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy's Building Technologies Office. 

    This event is open to the public - please feel free to forward this invitation to others in your network whom might be interested in attending.
