Do you want to work towards a sustainable future?
Become part of our Energy Data Hackdays and
develop new solutions in interdisciplinary teams within 32 hours!

Where: Hightech Zentrum Aargau in Brugg
When: 6 – 7 March 2020


The 13 solutions developed last year prove that open Hackdays can make a valuable contribution to energy efficiency and to our understanding of energy. Let’s build on these results and use energy data to create a sustainable energy future. Welcome are all kinds of skills and perspectives: students*, data analysts*, designers*, programmers*, experts* and many more!

Why energy data?

Digitalization, which has already fundamentally changed many industries in recent years, is only just beginning in the energy industry. We want to exploit this potential!

Energy companies and public infrastructure operators are generating large amounts of data that are only partially used or not used at all. A better use of idle data for new services and analyses is in the interest of these companies and their customers, but above all in the interest of society. Within the framework of the Energy Data Hackdays, energy companies, public administrations and other organisations related to the energy industry provide data for the development of creative ideas and initial prototypes.

What’s the plan?

We were very happy last year that many children attended the final presentation.
We therefore offer a free “Develop your city” workshop from 14.00 to 16.30 on Saturday afternoon. Please send a written registration at maud.chatelet(at) until March 1st with name, age of the children and parent mobile nr.!

Why should I participate?

The exciting challenges are what motivated me most. I felt that i’ll have the chance to be creative and to meet people from other branches and points of view. And so it was. Reaching for a meaningful goal, the interdisciplinary exchange and the super spirit – it totally fulfilled my expectations!

– Expand your network with diverse contacts from the scene
– Work with like-minded people on a project idea that is close to your purpose
– Learn more about new developments in the energy sector
– Be part of the energy revolution against climate change
– Present a project idea and motivate the experts to develop it further with you
– Perhaps get support for further development of your project

* We are very much encouraging women to take part: it would be a pity to miss out on your valuable insights.
