Building The Future, an event sponsored by Microsoft and built by imatch, has taken on the challenge of Digitally Transforming Portugal since 2019. After 3 editions, the themes and trends may have changed, but our mission remains the same: empowering people and companies through technology.
Building the Future Hackathon had its very 1st edition last year. Due to its success, we want to keep counting on you to help us build the future! This year we've teamed up with Upcoming Energies powered by Galp and we will count on the expertise of EIT InnoEnergy to launch the challenge of developing a Low Carbon Future.
Today we are truly aware of the importance of reducing our carbon footprint. But talking about it isn’t enough anymore – action is necessary. Upcoming Energies wants to shift the paradigm for the entire energy system and contribute to a carbon neutral world, moving from fossil fuels to an energy based on renewable sources.
We challenge you and your team to push the boundaries of technology and come up with innovative solutions to a Low Carbon Future in the following areas:
How can we take advantage of solar photovoltaic technology?
How can we take full advantage of the Electric Vehicles' batteries?
How can we best manage the station operation and the customer experience?
Do you have an innovative solution that promotes a Low Carbon Future?
