Do I have to stay on site for 32 hours?

No, that’s not necessary either. It is important that you contribute to the success of your chosen project and discuss with your team when and where you work.

Which overnight options are available?

You can stay overnight directly on site with your sleeping mat and sleeping bag, but this is not the most comfortable option. Therefore, we have organized alternatives for you and the best thing is, we will cover the overnight costs from Friday to Saturday for you if you actively participate in the Energy Data Hackdays.

Just choose one of the three overnight options:

1. Option, Overnight stay at the Centurion
Just write a mail with your full name and the registration confirmation to info@energydatahackdays.ch
Will will do the rest for you.

What is the official language?

English! In the groups, feel free to adapt to your preferences.
You can find the German version of the information here.

What do I need to bring along?

The most important thing: interest in the themes energy and data. Don't forget your laptop. You should also bring pens and possibly a sleeping bag. However, we will provide you with a basic set of materials such as papers, flipcharts, post-it, food and drinks. 

What happens afterwards?

We want the resulting Hackdays projects to have a long-term, sustainable impact. Accordingly, partner organizations and Challenge Owners are happy to continue to support and promote promising projects and results to the best of their abilities.

The discussion about energy also goes on within the Energy Data Working Group. Have a look!

Notice: opensource principle

The challenges and their results are freely accessible and will be published on the homepages of opendata.ch and also BfE (SwissEnergy) after the event. The data used for the elaboration are not included. In the case of companies' own data, these remain with the respective data owners.
