1st Ukrainian Solar Hackathon In Kyiv

Originally published on EnergyTorrent.

3The first Ukrainian solar hackathon will take place on June 6–8, 2014 in Kyiv. A joint event by EnergyTorrent and Geek Workspace will gather hacker teams willing to compete for the name of the best solar hacker team and a nice set of prizes.

Focus on CSP

This first solar hackathon is focused on concentrated solar power (CSP), namely – on devices concentrating solar light for further usage for generating electricity and heat. CSP is one of the technologies holding promise for solving the traditional issues of renewable energy – unpredictable generation of energy from renewable sources. Combining CSP with thermal energy storage modules allows one to make energy available on demand around the clock while accumulating it at the time when the sunlight is abundant.

Part of EnergyTorrent construction set

We see CSP technologies as one of the components of the EnergyTorrent project which will allow everyone to use locally available renewable energy sources. CSP technology can be used in many diverse ways and combinations – from generating thermal energy to generating electricity and co-generation.

Partners

Besides the core team that is organizing SunnyDay, several partners have already joined the event. Among them – Atmosfera.ua, KHakerSpace, and Black Energy. We are now in active negotiation with a number of organizations willing to join the hackathon fun.

Updates are coming

This is just an initial announcement. We will soon announce the rules of the hackathon and open up registration. So, much great news is coming 🙂
