Submit Your Smart Grid Killer App In The GreenBeat 2010 Innovation Competition

Greenbeat 2010

Monday October 25th is the submission deadline for the GreenBeat 2010 Innovation Competition. We’re looking for the freshest, most promising ideas for making the power grid smarter, more efficient, or more potent.

If you are working on an idea that could disrupt the way we think about the grid today, then we want you in the running, whether you’re a startup, big business, or research institution. The deadline to submit an application is October 25! Apply here.

Up to 10 finalists will present live onstage at GreenBeat 2010, the executive summit on the Smart Grid, happening this Nov. 3 and 4, at Stanford University.

On top of that, DEMO, the leading launch platform for emerging technologies, and strategic partner of GreenBeat 2010, will be offering winners of the Innovation Competition the opportunity to launch their products at DEMO in 2011 — a prize valued at $18,500. Notable runner-ups will also be mentioned on

Participating in the competition will also mean exposure in front of an audience of Smart Grid industry leaders, including venture capitalists, utility executives, other entrepreneurs and the best of the green press.
