This years Clean Tech Competition is titled "Creating a Greener Future", the focus is for you to identify a specific problem associated with buildings or homes, building materials, problems associated with efficiency, damage mitigation or indoor environmental quality. The first step in your project will be to determine a problem then research and describe the scale of the problem and the affected populations. The second portion of the project will be to design a solution that uses clean technology to address the issue.
