The Catapult is partnering with ScottishPower Renewables, National Grid ESO and the Energy Technology Partnership to host our first-ever hackathon, taking place 28-29 October at the Glasgow Science Centre.
With a £10,000 prize pot available, the two-day hackathon centres around an industrial data-led challenge set by ScottishPower Renewables, with the aim of developing a prototype solution for use in wind farm operations.
The National Grid ESO will join the hackathon’s judging panel, alongside the Catapult and ScottishPower Renewables.
UK-based small businesses, academics, students, consultancies and specialists from data-led sectors are all invited to participate. Teams of up to six people will be eligible to win a share of the prize pot, and the successful squads will have the opportunity to pitch their solutions to senior managers from ScottishPower Renewables.
