The competition, promoted by Microsoft, imatch, Galp and EIT InnoEnergy, received a total of 165 participants from 29 countries. The three winning projects, among 20 innovative solutions in the competition that sought to build a low-carbon future, They were selected for their potential, for the correct identification of the problem and the creation of an appropriate solution, to align with one of the challenges presented by the organizations, for the development of the team during the hackathon and for their quality and impact. spitin a joint statement sent to the editorial rooms.
After forming teams and going through a mentoring phase with specialists from Galp and EIT InnoEnergy, Programmers and entrepreneurs had to choose between one of five proposed challenges Electric car batteries. financing the energy transition; search for the best sites for solar communities; alternative solar PV solutions; Optimizing hydrogen refueling stations – designing the first project conception, problem identification, value proposition, solution and technology, then submission to TAIKAI, the Portuguese hackathon platform.
Six Best Suggestions They moved into development where they worked on their solution in AzureSupported by mentors from Microsoft. This phase ended with a presentation session, where the teams presented and defended their solution before a jury made up of one member from each challenge entity.
stayed The audience will choose the winning projectBy the most votes, from among the four finalists selected after the pitch session: D30 Biofuel; Electric tree. Solar PV Positioning Optimizer Module; and waste.
