Smart energy is evolving rapidly. New energy technologies such as solar panels, batteries, electric vehicles and over-the-internet metering and control systems are rapidly becoming cheaper and more ubiquitous. At the same time, there have been great advances in adjacent areas such as artificial intelligence, drones and telecommunications. Startups can lead the energy revolution by taking advantage of these trends. 

This event will explore the convergence of smart energy trends making new innovations and business models possible. The next event is a hackathon to help turn any smart energy startup ideas into reality. More information and hackathon registration below.
