The SCTE/ISBE says it has received 20 entries for the Adaptive Power Challenge, a competition created by the SCTE/ISBE in partnership with Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) and Liberty Global (NASDAQ:LBTYA).

Entrants submitted concepts in three areas: Demand Response; Monitoring and Measurement; and Supply and Control. Winners in two categories - Established Enterprises and Breakthrough Organizations - will collect prizes of $10,000 each and will have the opportunity to test their solutions with the biggest cable system operators in the world.

Following evaluation by judges from Comcast, Liberty Global, Cox, Rogers, Shaw and CableLabs, six finalists will be announced on Sept. 12 at the SCTE/ISBE Standards Energy Management Systems Plenary in Louisville, CO. The finalists will present their solutions on Oct. 23 at Cable-Tec Expo 2018 in Atlanta, with the two winners to be announced onsite.

"Based on the initial phase alone, the Adaptive Power Challenge has been successful in that it has generated new ideas for helping cable operators manage energy use across broadband networks," said Chris Bastian, senior vice president, engineering, and CTO of the SCTE/ISBE. "We're grateful to all of the innovators who devoted their time and resources to creating submissions and look forward to the next phases of the competition in the coming months."

Produced under the auspices of the SCTE/ISBE Energy 2020 program, the Adaptive Power Challenge is designed to inspire solutions that can lead to breakthrough change in cable network energy management. The Challenge is intended to leverage the Adaptive Power System Interface Specification (APSIS) (ANSI/SCTE 216 2015) and related material that have been created by the SCTE/ISBE Standards Program.
