KTH University, partner of the project, organized a 2-days hackathon during the weekend 13-15 of September 2014. The main theme of the event was “Saving energy for social good”.
The challenge was to develop solutions to achieve this goal, to solve the challenge of attracting people and keeping them engaged/informed, and to know how to you use their energy data. The main focus of this hackathon was using the Green Button standard. The Green Button initiative aims to bring the energy data from the providers to their customers. With a standardised format and protocol for data exchange, there is space for building new services and apps for visualising your energy use.
