Energy Climate Data Hackathon 2021

Energy Climate Data Hackathon 2021

A 5-day online workshop (and 3h scoping event)
21st to 25th June 2021: UK working hours

This event has been completed.  The original hackathon webpage is available here and a write-up of the event is here.

To promote the understanding of climate risk in future energy systems, the Universities of Oxford and Reading, working in partnership with the UK Met Office, hosted a virtual (online) 5-day hackathon on 21-25 June 2021. The hackathon was part of a series organised through the Met Office – Academic Partnership (MOAP), and the goal of this event was to produce novel solutions for understanding and quantifying climate risks in future energy systems including:

  • Developing decision support aids
  • Providing improved solutions for data-exchange between energy- and climate- science
  • Model development and enhancement
  • Novel end-user applications

The hackathon was open to anyone working in the fields of energy and/or climate whether from industry, policy or academia, and was attended by ~40 participants from around the world.  A detailed write up of the event is being prepared (for submission to BAMS) and will be uploaded here once it is available.

Outputs from the event are available here:
