Fundamental changes are on the horizon in the energy sector. The end of the service life of nuclear power plants calls for the development of diverse, regenerative and decentralized energy technologies, such as geothermal energy, wind and solar technology. Digital tools are being used in more and more areas in order to optimize and stabilize the interplay between energy supply, use and storage.
Hackathons bring together energy experts, analysts, data scientists, programmers, students and interested people from all disciplines to work together with team spirit and enthusiasm on solutions to concrete problems. Take part!
