Stromnetz Berlin and the Open Knowledge Foundation organised the third and so also the last WindNODE hackathon, Energy Hack³ – City * Energy * Mobility Transition, in September 2020.

The Energy Hacks are an opportunity for developers and visionaries to contribute to and collaborate on a more sustainable electricity supply and digital strategies for the future. Using open data from the energy industry provided by Stromnetz Berlin and other partners as part of the WindNODE project, the implementation of ideas is promoted and the development of solutions is supported.

As a result of coronavirus restrictions, this event was held not only in the Engelnest ('Angels' Nest'), the site of the brand-new InfraLab Berlin, but also remotely. In just 24 hours the over 50 participants (joining us remotely and in person) put together creative projects using open data from the energy industry in order to raise society's awareness of electricity and energy grids and the energy transition, and to develop applications for these domains, and specifically for three challenges:

  1. The Mobility Transition in Berlin – What Would Be a Suitable Compromise?
  2. Berlin as a Resilient City – How Can We Get Set for the Future?
  3. Climate Protection, Energy and the Environment – How Can We Shape the Energy Transition in the City?
