A major topic of interest among the tech-savvy is how to improve the power grid, which will enable us to reduce power and use it more efficiently, resulting in lower energy bills. The GE ecomagination Challenge: Powering the Grid is seeking the best new grid technologies, models, and processes for clean, usable energy. GE and its partners have committed to invest $200 million in ideas submitted by inventors, technologists, and entrepreneurs who come up with marketable ways to create and connect power with improved grid intelligence and efficiencies.

Do you have creative ideas about power grid technology? If so, GE wants to hear from you.

If your energy-saving grid solution is one of the ideas selected by the challenge judges, it might just come to life with the help of a cash grant, a GE research center fellowship, a cooperative product development agreement, and/or an equity investment.

The GE ecomagination Challenge: Powering the Grid combines its eco-conscious effort with an interactive social community that tracks online votes, highlights contest entries, and provides facts and figures about grid technologies and renewable resources.
