1kWh Challenge

The 1 kWh Challenge promotes energy awareness about every-day consumer electronics and their power consumption to the public. The challenge consists of 4 different tasks: Hot-Air-Pong, Gaming Central, Movie Night and MTV Studio, all accomplished by utilizing everyday electronics. Through the challenge participants have experiential learning of basic energy concepts, such as wattage, kWh consumption and carbon dioxide emissions per task. At the end, participants will be able to see how much energy they have used since the start of the challenge. This challenge will greatly improve the perception of a kWh and promote the virtue of doing more with less.
