EcoHack

This October, Zeigo will be hosting EcoHack®; the renewable energy hackathon making London the centre of the green energy revolution. In partnership with Scottish Power and DLA Piper, the event will challenge participants to create digital solutions that enable smaller businesses to contract energy directly from wind and solar farms - something they can’t do singlehandedly at the moment.

Zeigo is calling for energy experts, data scientists, engineers, coders, creatives, entrepreneurs and product developers to apply their skills to problem solve and address obstacles in procuring clean energy.

The event will unify those interested in creating smart energy solutions to pave the way for small to medium sized companies to participate in the renewable energy market.

Winners of the hackathon will be invited to showcase their winning innovative projects and solutions to the industry’s key players in a webinar organised with RE100 members. The RE100 is a prestigious body of the world’s most influential leaders committed to going 100% renewable, led by The Climate Group in partnership with the CDP.
