It kicked off in January 2016 with the announcement of the selected finalist. The finalist now has until the summer of 2016 to complete construction of their system. Afterwards, testing will begin to collect technical and cost information, which will be analyzed after the competition closes in the fall of 2016 to determine if the system meets the criteria to win the $1 million prize. During the testing phase there will be an “Open House” giving the public an opportunity to get a look at the system. HEF and DOE plan to announce the outcome of the $1 Million competition in early 2017.
