Eureka Park at CES is the home to innovative startups. To celebrate green initiatives, CTA launched a contest to find which startups had tech with the ability to combat climate change. Seven were named the CES 2019 Climate Change Innovators:

The Blue Whale Company’s Spy Can contributes to the monitoring and saving of water while sending real-time alerts about leaks and overconsumption. The Spy Can is designed to meet the needs of even the most remote sites to monitor pressure and remotely control the valves autonomously.

Connected Garden’s Archibald is a personal digital gardener that selects the best plants to have in exact locations based on sunlight and other factors. Just place the super sensor in the soil you want to use for your garden and the app will suggest which plants will thrive in that location.

GoSun’s Fusion is a hybrid solar cooker that lets people cook day or night while only using solar power. The Fusion is five times more efficient than a normal oven and can cook a meal with the same amount of energy used to power a lightbulb.

Heatworks’s MODEL 3 Water Heater is 99 percent more energy efficient that traditional methods. This tankless, electric water heater also has an app that can monitor your water usage, select and maintain a water temperature, and even limit the time spent in the shower.

LUMI’INs FLEX is a solar and connected LED street light that provides cleaner and cheaper-to-use lighting. It comes with additional options like smartphone control, motion sensors, WiFi extenders, cameras, fire detector, floor sensor, and a car parking sensor.

NanoScent is a detector that senses, monitors, alerts, and traces specific Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) in the air. Some of the use cases for NanoScent include VOC radar for preventing environmental disasters, controlling car cabin air quality, scent quality control in a production line, and reporting air and water pollution in cities.

SmartEmbed’s Eddo.drop is dedicated to water and energy preservation by controlling your shower duration. The Eddo.drop also comes with a built-in speaker and a motion sensor to control the water hose by waving your hand.
