After partnering with CAES on numerous challenges, Skild is proud to announce that we’ve joined forces once again — this time on the CAES Pathways to INL Net Zero challenge.
In April 2021, Idaho National Laboratory announced it will become Net Zero by 2030, an ambitious but feasible goal. To meet that timeline, the 2nd CAES Annual Pitch Event 2021: Pathways to INL Net Zero asked for participants’ most innovative ideas. CAES aims to refine and fund the most promising ideas for further development to translate them into implementation.
The 2nd CAES Annual Pitch Event 2021: Pathways to INL Net Zero was focused on leveraging talent within the CAES consortium (Boise State University, Idaho National Laboratory, Idaho State University, and University of Idaho) to further accelerate the INL Net Zero initiative as well as further develop the innovation culture across the CAES consortium. It was a developmental contest with impact.
Applicants were asked to submit solutions into one of 3 tracks:
Track A: Demonstration projects that reduce INL Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions footprint
Propose a technology demonstration that could be initiated by 2024.
Track B: Implement Today
Commercially available/proven technologies that can be initiated within the next year and that lead to any reduction in INL greenhouse gas.
Track C: Open Submission
Non-technology collaborations or applications that can be initiated within the next year that can lead to any reduction in INL greenhouse gas.
Stay tuned — finalists will be announced on September 22.
