Posted on: June 2nd, 2019

The 7th Annual Green Technology Challenge with the topic “Low Cost Standby Power Generation” was held on 2nd June 2019, at College of Science & Technology at Rinchending in Phuentsholing.

Green Technology Challenge was initiated in the year 2013 with the intention of contributing towards the national goal of remaining carbon neutral as well as giving a platform to showcase innovation and creativity of our future engineers towards efficient technologies that would benefit the rural communities.

This year about 27 proposals were received, out of which five were selected to enter the competition. Team 5 with the prototype “Quicklyte” which used simple salt based electrolytes, copper and zinc to produce sufficient energy that would charge mobile phones and provide emergency lightings, won the challenge.
