Highlights from the 2011 Future Energy Challenge held in Dearborn, Michigan. 

The International Future Energy Challenge (IFEC) is an international student competition for innovation, conservation, and effective use of electrical energy. The competition is open to college and university student teams from recognized engineering programs in any location. The 2011 competition addresses two broad topic areas:

Topic (A) Low Cost Lithium-Ion Battery Charger for Automotive and Renewable Energy Applications: All teams are encouraged to develop cost effective, novel solutions with proper protection circuits. The lithium-ion battery charger should be designed to have higher performance, lower weight, faster charging with longer battery effective usage times, and consistent reliability.

Topic (B) Low Power Induction Motor Drive System Supplied from a Single Photovoltaic Panel for an Emergency Water Treatment Device Maximizer: Develop an autonomous and fractional power (0.2hp) induction motor drive system. It will be supplied from a single photovoltaic panel, and will be responsible to drive a nanofiltration system without using any electrical energy storage device.
