Proposal: Heating, Cooling and Superior Ambiance Without Fossil Fuels Contest: Buildings 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 have reviewed your proposal and found that it contained intriguing elements; however, have chosen not to advance it to the next round of competition. We encourage you to keep developing your idea.

We welcome you to stay involved in the Climate CoLab community: support and comment on proposals that have been named Finalists, and vote during the public voting period to help select the contest’s Popular Choice Winner. Climate CoLab will be opening more contests throughout the year and you are welcome to submit your proposal 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. Sincerely, Contest Fellows If there are additional comments from the Judges & Fellows, they will be included below.
This looks like a terrific device that might well be efficient and desirable.
However, the proposal leaves a significant question as to the direct impact on carbon emissions reduction and building efficiency. Even if this is a terrific delivery mode for heating, cooling de/humidification, it is not clear how it will be more carbon-efficient than other delivery methods.
The question of delivering the primary heating or cooling is left uncertain and that is a problem. We need to see how this device would change the energy or carbon footprint.
This might be worth considering for other reasons, or you might develop the impacts so that we can understand how it makes a difference. As of now, there's not enough to understand its benefits.
