Judges'' comments

Proposal: Power Plant Cooling Water Waste Heat Utilization Contest: Energy Supply 2014 Thank you for your contest entry, Power Plant Cooling Water Waste Heat Utilization. We appreciate your willingness to share your ideas, and also the time and effort you put into developing a proposal and submitting it to the
. As your entry did not sufficiently address some of the revisions the Judges were hoping to see, we did not advance it to the next round of competition. We encourage you to keep developing your idea. Transfer your proposal to a Workspace to re-open it, make edits, add collaborators, and even submit it into a future contest. You can do so by logging into your account, opening your proposal, selecting the Admin tab, and clicking “Move proposal.” We welcome you to stay involved in the Climate CoLab community: support and comment on proposals that have been named Finalists, and vote during the public voting period to help select the contest’s Popular Choice Winner. Climate CoLab will be opening more contests throughout the year and you are welcome to submit your proposal to those contests as well. Keep up the great work. We hope that by working together, we all can create solutions that wouldn’t otherwise be possible. Sincerely, Contest Fellows If there are additional comments from the Judges & Fellows, they will be included below.

This proposal, while interesting, lacks certain details which makes it hard to properly evaluate it. Specifically, costing, implementation, and timelines were all rather vague. There were also some questions from two commenters about how novel and innovative this approach is/how it differs from technology that is already employed in existing power plants. Unfortunately the information on the proposal page was not sufficient to address these questions. For future contests, if you could submit a more detailed proposal which more directly 'sells' your approach in terms of its novelty, the niche it could fill, etc. it would be appreciated. In the meantime, we hope that you remain involved with the Climate CoLab community and thank you again for your involvement to date.
