GE’s Ecomagination Challenge is a $200 million call to action for businesses, entrepreneurs, innovators, and students to share their best ideas and come together to take on one of the world’s toughest challenges – building the next-generation power grid to meet the needs of the 21st century.
After registering, you may enter as many ideas as you wish in the three categories: Renewables, Grid Efficiency and Eco Homes/Eco Buildings between July 13 and September 30, 2010. Your entry should include a detailed proposal describing a smart grid technology that is both innovative and proprietary.
If you would like to attend a meeting in the City hosted by GE and featuring GE CEO Jeff Immelt and Meetup CEO Scott Heiferman go to http://www.meetup.com/GEecomagination/ (invitation code: ecomaginationchallenge). At this Meetup, Jeff Immelt and Scott Heiferman will lead a discussion on the business of green, the current power grid challenges and the need for innovation, as well as how working together, through the Ecomagination Challenge, we can all be a part of the solution.
There will be drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and plenty of time for networking!
