Hack the Wind - Hackathon

From 25 to 27 September 2018, InnoEnergy and WindEurope will host this year's Hack the Wind® event - the first hackathon aimed at developing innovative solutions for a greener planet. It will be held as part of the Global Wind Summit. Partners Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy and EDP Renewables will be offering two challenges. The first involves identifying where wind turbine numbers are inadequate in an effort to save time and money and thereby reduce costs for renewable energies; the second involves enhancing processes around energy storage using blockchain.
