IN THE FUTURE, WE WILL LIVE, WORK AND DRIVE ON RENEWABLE ENERGY
By linking solar and wind energy to the emergence of electric vehicles, we can accelerate the energy transition from fossil to sustainable fuels. In order to realize this, we have to work together on smart solutions.
We charge our electric vehicles when there is an abundant supply of solar and wind energy and avoid peak hours on the electricity grid. We use the batteries of electric vehicles to store this renewable energy for later use, for driving or for example to use it for cooking or for heating our homes. This is crucial in order to meet the growing energy demand and to optimally use renewable energy.
ARE YOU A PROGRAMMER, DESIGNER, DEVELOPER, DATA SCIENTIST OR INNOVATOR? ARE YOU A STUDENT, BUILDING YOUR STARTUP?
WE WANT YOU!
We are looking for the smartest, most innovative students, companies and start-ups in the world to help us unleash all the possibilities of smart charging. The team that comes up with the best idea will win one of the four prizes of € 2500,- and will receive support to further develop and implement their idea.
The Smart Charging Challenge will be organized at Broedplaats CONTACT Amsterdam (Contactweg 47, 1014AN Amsterdam). A former car dealership, long the domain of fossil fueled cars, has been transformed into a circular co-working space. A great place to work on new and smart applications, for prototyping and testing!
What is a hackathon without exciting challenges? Our partners have come across four challenges in their daily operations that are waiting for a creative solution – your winning idea is wanted to be implemented right after the Smart Charging Challenge!
