PolarPanel Team Masters Business Plan for NASA’s Solar Refrigeration Technology

Solar-powered refrigeration has been a winner at business plan competitions across the country, driven by a team from the University of Houston and the business plan the team created to commercialize a technology developed by NASA.

The PolarPanel team competed in nine competitions, winning five and taking home more than $45,000 in cash prizes, money that they will use to fund building the third-generation prototype and testing.

The business plan project is part of the curriculum at the nationally ranked Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship at the C. T. Bauer College of Business and pairs teams of students with technologies that may be ripe for commercialization.
