CABLE Prize Stage 1

Competitors submitted their breakthrough concepts to develop and manufacture new, affordable, electrical conductivity-enhanced material. Ten winners each received $25,000 in cash awards and a stipend for third-party testing of their material in Stage 2 of the prize. Stage 1 of the prize helped inform DOE about the minimum conductivity enhancement and other property benchmarks, as well as the types of support that competitors will likely need from DOE national laboratories or other American-Made Challenges Network providers in Stages 2 and 3 of the prize.
