The aim of the SunnyDay Challenge was to develop and produce the first Ukrainian open-source CSP-power plant (Concentrated Solar Power) for households. To encourage creative and skillful engineers, to contribute to the development of such an open-source solution, organizers set up a $2,500 award for the best design (and implementation) of such CSP solution.
