Semi-Finalist Evaluation

Judges'' comments

Thank you for your contest entry. We appreciate your willingness to share your ideas and also the time and effort you put into developing a proposal and submitting it to the contest.

We, the Judges, have strongly considered your proposal and found that it contained intriguing elements; however, we have chosen to not advance it to the next round of competition.

We encourage you to keep developing your idea. Transfer your proposal to the Proposal Workspace to re-open it, make edits, add collaborators, and even submit it into a future contest. You can do so by logging into your account, opening your proposal, selecting the Admin tab, and clicking “Move proposal”.

We welcome you to stay involved in the Climate CoLab community: support and comment on proposals that have been named Semi-Finalists and finalists, and even volunteer to join one those teams if you have relevant expertise. During the voting period, you can help select the contest’s Popular Choice Winner. The Climate CoLab will be opening more contests in the coming months, and you are welcome to submit your proposals to those contests as well.

Keep up the great work. We hope that by working together, we all can create solutions that wouldn’t otherwise be possible.

2015 Climate CoLab Judges

It is not clear how the end-to-end process works. Also, understanding the requirements for proper care and maintenance would be helpful.

Its hard to imagine widespread acceptance of the concept described, but I believe that the potential value is large, and apparently well analyzed as the benefits per unit, if there was acceptance. It would be a better proposal with some sense that the target locations could be made acceptable. To suggest usable office space would be set side for growing algae doesn't sound possible - the other suggestions more likely to have a limited acceptance. The proposal requires a more compelling presentation of functional and acceptable design possibilities.

Dear Vramanu: Thank you again for submitting a proposal to our contest. This project is innovative and creative. While the idea is novel and potentially effective, we decided not to send this forward to the finals. Thank you again for submitting a proposal to the Urban Heat Island Contest! Sincerely, Jen
