Open Energy Days is over!
September 23.-25. 2016 Open Energy Days was held, it’s a hackathon featuring Open Data from 9 different caseholders. Almost 60 people with different backgrounds spent 3 days competing with each other in creating the most innovative Open Data solution related to the category Energy.
The winners received a complete start-up package in order to turn their winning project into a startup company and are nominated by Open Data DK and Virk Data to take part in a nordic competition at the SLUSH-conference in Finland.
Open Energy Days was hosted by Open Data DK and Virk Data at Dokk1 in Aarhus, Denmark.
Thank you for a great event!
The winning group
The winning group was the group working with the Aarhus case. The case question from Aarhus was: Using data from cheap monitoring technology, how can we encourage people to change their energy consumption habits?
