What is the contest itself for?
  The Department of Energy (D.O.E.) created the ERBOT prize contest in order to provide fresh ideas for energy efficiency. The general problem to be solved is to improve the heating and cooling of houses, etc to reduce the U.S. climate global carbon footprint hopefully by 2035.
