Million Cool Roofs Challenge

About the challenge

Join Million Cool Roofs Challenge and scale up the deployment of “cool” roofs in developing countries. Register until May 20, 2019 and win $2,000,000!

The aim of this contest is to fast scale up the deployment of highly solar-reflective ("cool") roofs in developing countries with very high temperatures and lack of cooling services. 

The organizers will choose up to 10 teams and grant them $100,000 each to implement solar reflective coating and/or materials in a country included in the contest between August 2019 and December 2020. What's more, in 2021 a $1 million prize will be given to the team that will demonstrate the best sustainable and transferable model of rapid deployment of cool roofs in an eligible country and will meet the judging criteria the most. Materials should also meet the minimum performance standards and they should be implementable in roofs of buildings regularly occupied by people. 

Don't hesitate, visit the official Million Cool Roofs Challenge website, carefully read the requirements and submit your project until May 20, 2019.
