The Nairobi Energy Data Challenge was held in December 2016 and consisted of three events focusing on brainstorming, ideation and learning about data, off-grid energy access and Internet of Things technology.
Energy service providers, pay-as-you-go technology companies, NGOs, and anyone interested in off-grid energy access and data —jJoin us for an afternoon of brainstorming, ideating and prototyping ways to untangle and address challenges and emerging opportunities around data, technology and off-grid energy access.
Inventors, developers, programmers, and all-around tech lovers! Learn about emerging technologies and develop new IoT skills at the IoT Workshop with Pycom (some programming experience recommended). Get to know how Pycom is supporting rapid development and prototyping in the IoT space, and then bring your learning along to brainstorm energy-related IoT applications at the Energy Data Challenge Weekend.
Designers, data gurus, energy enthusiasts, techies, makers and more! Put on your brainstorming caps, pull out your creativity and design skills, bring along your interest in tinkering with electronics and IoT, and add anything you know or want to learn about making data meaningful and valuable to people and come to the Energy Data Challenge Weekend. Meet and work alongside University of Edinburgh students and staff as we take on challenges provided by energy service providers, NGOs, tech companies and researchers — and brainstorm, ideate and prototype all kinds of ideas and solutions around off-grid energy access and data.
