April Webinar: “Understanding the Requirements to Complete the Technical Application”

In this webinar, we’ll walk through the Detailed Technical Application and discuss the information and technical details applicants are required to submit to demonstrate that their cooling solution (1) meets prize criteria and (2) can be developed into two working prototypes by May 2020. We’ll discuss the evaluation method for each prize criteria along with documentation and analysis we expect from the participants to support their claims.

Ankit Kalanki

Ankit is an Associate with the Buildings Practice at RMI and is currently working on the Global Cooling Prize project. He is a recent graduate from Carnegie Mellon and brings with him a diverse skill set that includes techno-economic analysis, life cycle assessment, policy analysis as well as knowledge of application software such as Homer and Tableau.

Elizabeth O'Grady

Elizabeth is a Senior Associate in Rocky Mountain Institute’s Building Practice working on the Global Cooling Prize. The objective of the prize is to develop and scale a residential cooling solution that consumes five times less grid-supplied energy than today’s standard products. This technology could prevent up to 100 gigatons of CO2-equivalent emissions by 2050 and prevent 1°C of global warming by 2100. Elizabeth is also part of the SEED program, focused on our work in Uganda.
