Semi-Finalist Evaluation

Judges'' comments

Thank you for participating in the 2016 Climate CoLab's Climate Smart Zero Carbon Cities contest, and for the time you spent in creating your entry.

The Judges have strongly considered your proposal, and have chosen to not advance it as a Semi-Finalist for this contest.

This proposal outlines the key elements of solar PV systems. It then sets up the goal of installing them as broadly as possible around the world. But the proposal does not contain any plan for making that roll-out of solar technology possible. Many financial, technical, labour related, and legal issues would have to be address to make this massive roll-out of solar possible.

In addition, there is no discussion of what forms of solar PV are best suited to urban applications, nor of the challenges to solar power that are specific to urban spaces.

To have moved on to the next round, this proposal would have had to have set out a clear program for supporting large-scale urban applications of solar PV.

We, the Judges and contest Fellows, are truly grateful for your contribution to the Climate CoLab and for your commitment to address climate change.

We very much hope you will stay involved in the Climate CoLab community. Please support and comment on other proposals on the platform and continue to submit your ideas into our contests.

Keep up the great work. And thank you again for being a part of this mission to harness the world’s collective efforts to develop and share innovative climate change solutions.

All the best,
2016 Climate CoLab Judges
