- energy efficiency
Sustainable energy is an important aspect of the energy landscape. The new geopolitical and energy market realities require us to dramatically accelerate the transition to clean energy and increase Europe's energy independence from unreliable suppliers and unstable fossil fuels. Everyone is aware of the new reality and is looking for new solutions and opportunities. On the one hand, we need to become more efficient by using existing products, solutions and infrastructure to reduce costs and resource consumption; on the other hand, we need promote the uptake of more sustainable technologies and sustainable energy.
Therefore, Latvenergo as the state-owned electric utility company in Latvia, in collaboration with the Green and Smart Technology Cluster, is implementing the Energy Hackathon from 5th to 9th September. Within the Hackathon, data analysts, programmers, IT companies and anyone interested in the challenges are invited to participate, with the final event on 9 September in Liepaja. During the 5-day hackathon, participants will have the opportunity to work on the challenges set by Latvenergo, the largest energy company in Latvia, create innovative ideas and gain new cooperation partners. On the 6th of September also a Sustainable Energy Day event is organised, that will focus on promoting the importance of sustainable energy and energy efficiency.
