What innovative solutions can help improve energy efficiency across a range of corporate facilities?

Buildings account for approximately 1/3 of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Large commercial and industrial buildings are particularly energy and capital intensive, and represent one of the most important targets for GHG reduction actions that can be undertaken by business.  The operators of many of these buildings are exploring and seeking new ideas that can most effectively make these buildings -- and the business and industrial operations they enable -- more efficient, more controllable, smarter and more responsive to new smart grids. This contest is looking for specific project proposals from business to target deep energy efficiency initiatives in one or more major buildings - flagship facilities, headquarters, manufacturing facilities, and/or across a network of retail stores or supply chain facilities. These projects will ideally combine deep reductions in GHG emissions from electricity, thermal and process energy, while also leading to a more cost-effective and sustainable facility. This contest is also seeking contributions from Climate CoLab and the Horizon18 communities to help refine and develop these proposals. 

Winning projects and the most important contributions to those projects will be selected by the Horizon18 organizers for inclusion and presentation at the Horizon18 Clean Economy Solutions Summit in Boston, US on October 10-11, 2018.
