Air conditioning innovation wins the Decarbonathon competition
An Indian-based enterprise mobility platform has won the Decarbonathon competition with their air conditioning invention
Last year’s Decarbonathon competition, organised by the Young Global Leaders initiative of the World Economic Forum, has unearthed some impressive innovations, all of which were developed with the aim of reducing the world’s carbon footprint.
The Decarbonathon competition began in October 2015 and was open to anyone with a viable idea to reduce levels of CO2 emissions in the world’s cities. The co-organisers of the competition included big global names including the Centre for Carbon Measurement of the National Physical Laboratory, ENGIE, the National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI) and Climate-KIC.
After an exciting weekend in Paris earlier this month, where the 16 finalist made their last pitch to a panel of esteemed experts, the four winners of Decarbonathon have finally been announced.
In at number one, for the most innovative and implementable idea, is India-based enterprise mobility platform, Mobiliteam. The technical design and energy efficiency of their “air booster” invention impressed the panel of judges.
The “air booster” is an automotive innovation designed for electric vehicles in order to reduce the energy consumption of air conditioning systems. The experts were particularly impressed that the system worked “behind the scenes” and did not reply on any driver input.
Chairman and CEO of ENGIE, Gérard Mestrallet, commented: “With our partners, we are very proud and honoured to support the development of all these new ideas to fight global warning; it is the beginning of a challenging story together with the winning teams.”
Mobiliteam, and the three runners up, Bynd, TEBS (Traffic Energy Bar System), and Mutum, will receive the publicity and advice needed to kickstart their ideas.
