Public voting is now open

The public voting period for Apps for Energy has begun. Browse the Submission Gallery and vote for your favorites daily until May 31! Your vote will help determine who takes home the two Popular Choice Award prizes.

  1. See what place your submission is in.* Click on your submission, and check out the Current Standings to the right of your video.
  2. Make your app available for download. Let people try it out. Does the website listed on your submission include a link for people to download your app? Make it easy for the general public to access it.
  3. Rally your network to vote! Send a personal email, add a link in your email signature/chat status, and spread the word via your social networks. Don't be afraid to get creative. (To ensure the integrity of the competition, no bots or other unfair/fraudulent voting practices please. See full details in the Official Rules to avoid being disqualified.)

How often can I vote?

You can vote once per day per submission, and for as many submissions as you'd like. 

Questions? Drop us a note on the Apps for Energy discussion board or email us at Apps@hq.doe.gov.

Thanks,

The Apps for Energy team
