Net Zero Accelerator Selects TomKat Innovation Transfer Grantees

July 26, 2019


The U.S. Green Building Council's Los Angeles chapter chose two TomKat Center Innovation Transfer Program awardees—Keewi and SkyCool Systems—for the first cohort of its Net Zero Accelerator. The unique accelerator works to speed adoption of building solutions moving toward zero carbon, zero energy, zero water and zero waste. This major new initiative of the L.A. chapter identifies viable net-zero building technologies, positions them for success and accelerates their market entry throughout the greater Los Angeles region.

Keewi and SkyCool are among 13 technology solutions in the first cohort, detailed in the chapter’s announcement. Stanford University’s TomKat Center for Sustainable Energy’s Innovation Transfer Program helps Stanford inventors of sustainable energy technology bridge the gap between research and commercialization.



Keewi
turns everyday electrical outlets into a connected network of smart sensors that provide visibility, control, and insights for buildings and in aggregate, improve efficiency, comfort, convenience, and safety for buildings and their occupants.


       

       
SkyCool Systems
developed a passive rooftop cooling panel, enabled by a patented optical film that cools when outside exposed to the sky. Over their lifetime, our panels save millions of dollars worth of electricity and water when integrated with air conditioning and refrigeration systems.
