Winning Canberra Climathon team to showcase their ideas at Paris Climate Talks

18 November 2015

The winning team from the Canberra Climathon, Certified Renewable, have been judged one of the best “Global Climathon City Solutions” by the EU’s Climate-KIC and are on their way to the Paris Climate talks to showcase their ideas, with support from the Climate Change Institute.   They've also been rated a top-ten finalist in InnovationACT. 
Focused on facilitating the ACT’s renewable energy transition, ‘Certified Renewable’ plans to offer accreditation to small and medium-sized businesses in the ACT that use 100% renewable energy.   The young, innovative team will feature as part of Climate-KIC’s main showcasing event alongside other global winners of the 2015 Climate-KIC ‘Climathon’. 
This is a unique opportunity for the Canberra-based group to share their vision for supporting the ACT Government in developing a climate-ready and adaptable ACT with a high-level audience of city, climate, and start-up specialists. Ultimately, Certified Renewable hopes to move into other states across Australia to inspire and incentivise small and medium-sized businesses to partake in the renewable energy revolution.
