The energy sector has never been as relevant as it is today. Due to the scarcity of fossil fuels as well as the prevalence of geopolitical tensions we are paying prices for energy that are unparalleled. Yet it is unclear who is profiting from these tensions because the international energy market is opaque. Meanwhile an increasing number of households are struggling to financially get by. The system is on fire!
This has to change. With 60 experts, specialists, free thinkers and young people, a hopeful perspective has been designed for our energy system: World B.
Five initial design principles form a direction towards a desired future for our energy system:
- Everything is driven by 100% renewable energy
- Energy is accessible to all people
- Our energy system is connected to its environment
- Infrastructure is decentralized
- …and locally balanced
Transform.Hackathon aims to develop the new solutions, prototypes and processes that will enable this future perspective. In 48 hours, you -as a participant- will work on these solutions together with the challenge owners. The challenge owners are eager to work in co-creation with you and other participants. Together with the Transform.Hackathon team, they can offer experts, knowledge, data and a vast network. After the Hackathon they will be ready to further support promising propositions to become new start-ups, scale ups, co-creation projects, pilots and joint services. We call this the Impact.Booster Programme.
In Transform.Hackathon there are no winners! Our jury decides which solutions meet the entry criteria and become part of the Impact.Booster Programme.
