Proposal: Mining Urban Heat Contest: Energy Supply 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.

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 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.
In my view, this proposal would have been a best fit under the Buildings category.
Also, the proposal talks about redesigning cities to create a net zero secondary heat production scenario. My main question is "How feasible is this in an already built urban scenario?". If we are learning from existing heat islands to design cities better; we should also be looking at better building materials.
I am not convinced that this proposal directly addresses the main question of the energy supply contest - What initiatives, policies, and technologies can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the energy sector?
