The Power of Data UnLEASHED

What is the #enerthon20

#enerthon20 will take place for the first time from 19.10.-17.11.2020 in Paris (start) and Berlin (final parallel to the dena Energy system transformation congress).

Effective and digital challenges in the areas of gas/heat, electricity, alternative fuels, municipal utilities and critical infrastructure will be solved by teams within four weeks of coding and business case analysis.
Highly qualified and professional teams and individuals must apply two months in advance.

The #enerthon20 is part of the dena energiewende congress 2020

Covid-19 has shown that new, decentralized forms of cooperation not only offer flexibility and the integration of specialists as needed, but also advantages for a crisis-proof and stable company organization, especially in the area of critical infrastructure. This is exactly where comes in.

#enerthon20 Goals

For today's data-driven challenges of energy companies, professional teams with professional experience have to develop functional prototypes in a competition from 19.10.-17.11.2020 and present them to a jury for subsequent implementation in the companies.

Professional data specialists, business economists, lawyers and other interested parties from large and small energy suppliers and network operators in the electricity and gas sector, from the mobility sector and data companies.

Parallel to the DENA Energiewendekongress 2020, it can be shown to the public that the partners from industry and administration are really interested in actively searching for digital solutions for an energy transition today.

#enerthon20 Needs

Unstructured and unlinkeddata silos andnsecure, sensitive information in large and small energy companies and transmission system operators.

Identification/development of a secure infrastructure.

Challenge e.g. for municipal energy suppliers to understand secure data as a value.

Lack of resources and difficult access to experts to exploit this treasure.

The demand for highly qualified data scientists and data analysts is already enormous and will continue to grow in the future.

Hardly any access to experts through normal recruiting events and existing working time and salary models not interesting.
