The rapid progression of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) transforms the electrical grid into a new paradigm called Smart Grid (SG). This new reality offers valuable benefits such as distributed generation, self-monitoring, self-healing, pervasive control, two-way communication between utilities and energy consumers as well as better utilization of the existing resources. SG enables the development of smart energy-related applications, considering both efficiency potentials in the local energy production and consumption. However, at the same time, this revolution raises severe cybersecurity issues since SG is characterized by multiple heterogeneous and interconnected technologies. In this context, the SPEAR (www.spear2020.eu) and SIT4Energy (sit4energy.eu) projects join forces towards co-organizing a hackathon event that will focus on innovative approaches on energy-related cyber-security and end-user engagement, respectively.
The hackathon event will consist of 4 challenges (2 per project) and will last two days. Each challenge will be evaluated with very specific metrics that will be presented along the challenges.
The event will start on Wednesday the 23rd of October at 9:00 am, and finish on Thursday the 24th at 17:00 pm with the S² Hack4Energy Results and Awards.
All you have to do is to get a ticket from S2 Hack4Energy (www.f6s.com/s2hack4energy).
