Eligibility Criteria

VentureBeat officially kicked off the 2010 GreenBeat Innovation Competition in October. VentureBeat is looking for the freshest, most promising ideas for making the power grid smarter, more efficient, or more potent.


By grid, they aren't referring merely to utility lines and smart meters, but also the grid’s “edges” too, and so are looking for ideas that transform everything the sourcing more climate-friendly renewables, to the types of cars we drive, to the way consumers decide when and how to use electricity at home or in the office. Fuel cells, batteries — these count too.
