Global energy use is rapidly increasing while our supplies of traditional fossil fuels are running out. The $200 million GE Ecomagination Challenge was created to find and fund new and better ways to create, connect and use energy as we modernize our energy grid. To encourage people to get involved, we asked them to vote for their favorite ideas.
Over 65,000 site users from all around the world have logged on to the GE Ecomagination Challenge site to vote and leave comments on the more than 3,500 ideas submitted. To help visitors find good ideas more quickly, we designed a useful tool that let them see which ideas were the most talked about and when they were submitted.
