Stockholm Solar Challenge

Compete with your idea for solar energy solutions in Stockholm Royal Seaport.

Stockholm Solar Challenge gives you the opportunity to share your ideas for how to best integrate and showcase solar energy within an urban environment. While participating in the competition you have the opportunity to win 50 000 Swedish kronor as well as the possibility to see your idea integrated in Stockholm Royal Seaport.

The Challenge

The challenge is to integrate a visually appealing solar energy solution into the new city district, Stockholm Royal Seaport. The solution doesn’t need to include a new technical innovation of solar technology, but may be an existing technology that can be innovatively integrated into urban environments. The integration of the solution should be considered for public places (eg, streets, squares and parks), where the solution can provide energy for functions within the city. The proposal can either offer a standalone solution as a part of the urban environment, or provide a solution that is integrated into building design.

The solar energy solution should be a trademark of Stockholm Royal Seaport and an innovation that is possible to replicate within and outside Stockholm Royal Seaport. Through the integration of innovative solutions, the goal is also to increase the understanding of the benefits of solar technology among the residents of Stockholm Royal Seaport and beyond.

A first place winner will be awarded with 50 000 Swedish kronor as well as the opportunity to possibly see his/her solution integrated in Stockholm Royal Seaport. An additional 50 000 Swedish kronor may be distributed among 1-5 contributions the jury considers quality proposals. Read more about the prizes here.


The competition is open to Swedish and international participants, and welcomes contributions from individuals and teams, as well as organizations and businesses. You must be at least 16 years of age to participate. Learn more about the eligibility here.
