Everyone is talking about smart grids. Why? They are key enablers of the revolution that the electric grid is undergoing. As the forces of Decarbonization, Digitalization, and Decentralization gain momentum, a new way of managing the electric grid must be developed to face the brave new world that is coming.
The bad news is that there is still a lot of work to be done. The good news is that where there is work, you can always find opportunities.
In this hackathon, we invite you to help shape the future of power systems by focusing on one of its fundamental building blocks, the smart-meter.
We challenge you to think, design and prototype services around the smart meter which will create value for the end user. These services can be provided by the DSO itself, or by other market agents.
You will have access to a dataset with load metering data from a building block of the DSO grid with hundreds of different final customers (two years of data with 15-minute granularity). Some of these customers live in single/individual houses, others live in flats in three different buildings. You will also have access to additional information about each customer, like, for instance, contracted power.
If you need a couple of ideas as a source of inspiration:
Reach us through our Taikai Slack, by join us through http://bit.ly/jointaikaislack posting your issues on #edp-hackthehelectron-a channel. We'll have people from EDP to answer any technical questions that may rise.
Do you want an “Azure Pass” worth $100 of services? EDP will give these passes to the teams that ask for them via slack!
