August Newsletter from GE: ecomagination
Thanks for making month one of the GE: ecomagination Meetup partnership such a success. GE: ecomagination chose to sponsor your community because the company recognizes that small business owners, technologists, entrepreneurs, and green-focused innovators -- Your Members -- are the ones that will be solving one of the world's toughest challenges: developing a more energy efficient and smarter digital grid.
ORGANIZERS: Below is the second newsletter for you to send to your members. All you need to do now is share this with your members by forwarding to: [address removed]. Before forwarding, please delete all text appearing in green as this is intended for organizers only.
We're at the halfway mark for the GE ecogmagination Challenge: Powering the Grid, and more than 1,000 ideas from 60 countries have been submitted with upwards of 16,000 votes cast so far.
Submissions so far range from installing ultra-capacitors to manage the output of renewable energy resources and software solutions that make use of abundant real-time data to predict future energy use to wave energy using hydraulics and a hurricane-resistant wind turbine. Not to mention ideas that we may all see in our homes someday, such as intelligent adaptors and switches that would retrofit energy guzzling devices so they can talk to new smart meters.
What's your idea? There's $200 million on the line (not to mention the future of clean energy!) to find the best ideas to create smarter, cleaner and more efficient electric grids! Submit an idea or vote for your favorite one on the site by visiting http://www.ecomagination.com/challenge before the Challenge closes on September 30th.
Ecomagination Challenge: The challenge is an open call for breakthrough ideas and technologies that will help create a smarter, cleaner, more efficient and economically viable grid, and to accelerate the adoption of smart grid technologies. Collectively, GE and its venture capital partners have committed $200 million to help bring these new ideas to market.
The challenge is open to technologists, entrepreneurs, start-ups, students and groups like yours from across the globe. It's open to anyone aged 18 years or older and all legally formed entities. Read all the details here and submit your ideas at http://challenge.ecomagination.com/ideas.
