THE STORY:

The Alternative Grid Challenge is an open ideas competition to generate creative new perspectives of energy and its role in contemporary society.

To be opened in the Spring of 2011, the Challenge will invite artists, designers, tinkerers, thinkers and theorists amongst others to propose an energy grid that moves beyond the scope and limitations of conventional energy delivery systems and imagine what a more socially and culturally oriented alternative grid might look like. Could 21st values of network culture (participation, sharing, transparency, non-hierarchy) be applied to our energy systems and organize people and things in new ways? Could an 'alternative grid' be for energy what Muhammad
Yunus's micro-credit 'grid' was to conventional commerce?

The competition will ask users to consider energy as neither a finite nor an infinite resource, but a set of constantly changing relations that is fundamentally transactional and translational in nature. The aim is to generate a set of creative and critical ideas to question the current paradigm of energy and challenge conventional industrial-age perspectives of nature and society.
