Green Comm Challenge is an organization founded and led by Francesco De Leo that actively promotes the development of energy conservation technology and practices in the field of Information and Communications Technology (ICT). Green Comm Challenge achieved worldwide notoriety in 2007, when it enlisted as one of the challengers in the 33rd edition of the America's Cup, an effort meant to show how researchers, technologists and entrepreneurs from around the world can be brought together by an exciting vision: building the ultimate renewable energy machine, a competitive America's Cup boat.

I was initially disappointed it wasn't Luna Rossa but I like the basis for Green Comm's challenge and it so fits the hard wing catamarans as a showcase for their renewable energy pitch.
I wonder what the connection is with GreenCom which is the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) green communications initiative, eliminating paper for electronic documents and replacing high carbon jet set business trips with teleconferencing. They sound related.
