Renewable energy focus of contest

    Anchorage, Alaska (KINY) The University of Alaska Center for Economic Development wants ideas on ways to generate business in the renewable energy industry.

    There are currently 100 Alaska businesses that work with renewable energy.  There are teams working on projects and will present them at an event called Anchorage Community Works on Friday.

    The organizers of the contest assigned a different challenge to four teams.  They have been given five weeks to solve each challenge.

    Alaska's Energy Desk reported the contest was inspired by a similar one common in Silicon Valley.
