Attention: Energy Enthusiasts!
The MaRS Energy Hackathon is coming to Toronto this September and they want you to be there.
MaRS is calling on developers, designers, energy experts and budding entrepreneurs to create apps and hardware that make use of the Green Button open API and other sample datasets.
The goal? Your brainchild will help consumers better understand, access and manage their electricity consumption. The Green Button standard has already been adopted across the United States (including Federally!), and is starting to take hold across Ontario. In fact, to date, it's allowed 2.6 million Ontarians to access and share their electricity data.
On September 7 & 8, come to MaRS to build an app, create a gadget and join the Green Button Revolution!
