New ideas to shrink our carbon footprint

Almost 50 ideas have been submitted in the GE Ecomagination challenge across an array of options for lowering our carbon footprint. And as a group they represent a good synopsis of the kind of challenges we need to resolve if we’re to dramatically lower emissions.

It is now several months into the $10 million GE Ecomagination Challenge and with just two weeks left, there are now almost 50 ideas submitted across an array of options for lowering our carbon footprint. What’s interesting is that few involve a new type of renewable energy power generator. Rather they tend to be a mix of ideas about how we might make better, more efficient use of energy, manage the variability of renewable energy sources, and employ information technology to make more efficient products, processes and services.

While a lot of the ideas are rough around the edges, and several I suspect simply won’t work; as a group they represent quite a good synopsis of the kind of challenges we need to resolve if we’re to dramatically lower carbon emissions.
