February 1st, 2014 by Zachary Shahan
Think you could come up with a top energy app? Think it’s so good you deserve some money to develop it? If so, apply for some of the $100,000 that will be awarded for top apps through the US Department of Energy’s Apps for Energy contest.
Note that the prizes will be for web and mobile apps, and the deadline to apply is March 9, 2014. This contest is part of the DOE’s American Energy Data Challenge.
A representative from Energetics, Inc also passed along some information regarding upcoming hackathons that could help you to develop your idea before submitting it to the DOE. Here are the details:
In support of this effort, Hackathons have been planned at which you can meet teammates, discuss your ideas with experienced mentors, and begin working on or polishing a submission. Each Hackathon is free to register and attend, will provide refreshments and will feature prizes for the teams that have the best demo at the end of the event! Teams are encouraged to keep working on their app for submission in the Apps for Energy Contest.
Hackathons have been planned in the following cities:
