Description

A Mini JUMPathon: Jump Start Your Innovation

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) JUMP initiative invites you to the ASHRAE Mini JUMPathon, held in conjunction with the Student Program for the 2017 ASHRAE Annual Meeting at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. Innovators will brainstorm on solutions to interesting technical challenges facing the building HVAC&R industry today. These solutions, upon commercialization, could realize significant energy savings and enhanced comfort in buildings.

Through JUMP, DOE and some of its national laboratories are engaging with industry partners to develop crowdsourcing campaigns to gather ideas that address specific technical challenges and accelerate the next generation of energy-efficient building technologies. Innovators are encouraged to submit their ideas to the JUMP website, then a team of technical judges reviews all submissions and helps identify winning ideas. Winning ideas will be awarded cash prizes, and mentoring or incubation support by JUMP partners. In addition, national laboratories may provide in-kind technical support in the validation, testing, and prototyping to enable moving the ideas to the market faster.

During the JUMPathon, the JUMP team will be on-site to facilitate discussions around solutions for the calls for innovation and demonstrate use of the JUMP platform. At the end of the JUMPathon, innovators will be encouraged to register and submit their ideas.

Tentative Agenda

  • 2-2:15pm: Welcome & Get to know the audience
