CES Climate Change Innovators Contest
Brendan Derry, Business & Tech Editor
This past December, the Consumer Technology Association announced the seven winners of the CES Eureka Park Climate Change Innovators contest. This contest seeks to award technology innovators for their work in combating climate change by developing tools to aid consumers and the environment as a whole. Primarily they focus on the lowering the amount of greenhouse gas emissions.
The CTA says that they have developed this showcase of innovations to present new technology to the world in an effort to aid in the success of companies that make it their mission to work towards a more sustainable world. Many of the entries are from small startups that have no other products so the publicity from such a large event could be the difference between success and failure for an emerging product.
The winners of the showcase have created tools to lower energy and water consumption, as well as measurement tools and sensors that ensure people use only what they need and that what they are using is safe. These are noble goals and if these innovations are to expand and become commonly used, they have the potential to change the way people live and allow for a greener, healthier lifestyle in developed and developing countries.
