Prinzessinnenstraße 19-20, 10969 Berlin
For 24 hours (and beyond) become part of humanity’s most exciting challenge:
creating a sustainable energy future to fight climate change. More than 100 engineers, coders, designers, psychologists, social scientists and entrepreneurs will gather in Berlin on February 19th to hack 3 of the most important, ambitious and complicated energy efficiency challenges. The outcome: well-created and (somehow) tested concepts with possible further follow-up developments for winning ideas!
The German Energiewende is the most exciting project in the world to stop climate change. Policy interventions and new technology have only started to disrupt the whole energy market.
The most „forgotten“ and at the same time central aspect of the Energiewende is the massive reduction of energy demand (heat, mobility and electricity) targeted. All Energiewende (and CO2 reduction) scenarios are based on a demand reduction by at least 50% even while the economy continues to grow – therefore energy efficiency shall become the biggest source of energy in the next years.
GOOD NEWS: many approaches to save energy do already exist.
BUT: they barely find their way to the energy consumers as polished products. New digital approaches and new players are needed to fundamentally change the energy demand game!
This can only work if the DNA of researchers (innovative knowledge), the EE industry (customers and market experience) and start-ups (creativity, agility) are re-combined to a new creature. We call it the EE-lobster with a big brain, swiss knifed hands and strong muscles. A bit scary, but also clever and strong. Join the EE-lobster at the EnergyEfficiencyHack2018 and become part of the solution to climate change.
Registration until 09.02.2018!
