Our Jurors

About the Competition

Startups with transformative business solutions for urban energy and sustainability challenges were invited to apply to our first-ever Urban Future Competition this year. From its launch on June 14 during New York Energy Week through August 14, we received applications in two categories: Smart Cities and Smart Grid.

Three finalists in each category will pitch their solutions to investors, market partners, and other entrepreneurs at Jury Day on September 12. One winner in each category will be selected to join ACRE, our incubator program; receive $25,000; and the chance to meet with mentors from strategic partners and sponsors, including smart grid teams in New York’s largest utilities. The winners will be announced at an awards showcase during the New York REV Future 2016 conference on September 27.
