Event Details

YPE Edmonton members have the opportunity to participate as a Judge and/or Consultant in the upcoming Alberta Energy Callenge September 25-29, 2013.


The Alberta Energy Challenge (AEC), hosted by the University of Alberta School of Business and the Commerce Energy and Environment Group, is a business case competition focused on exploring the opportunities and challenges present in the dynamic energy sector. AEC will bring together top commerce students from across the world and provide them with an unparalleled opportunity to further develop and explore their interests in energy and the environment. The competition has a particular focus on market access, a key issue present in the Alberta energy landscape. Teams will be asked to research and develop a comprehensive and innovative solution to a real time challenge presented by one of Alberta’s energy companies. The 2013 Alberta Energy Challenge will be held September 25 – 29 2013.

Opportunities to participate in the competition as a judge and/or consultant are now available:
