CleanerGrid is a competition for third level students to use data from EirGrid’s Smart Grid Dashboard and/or from the Single Electricity Market Operator (SEMO) website to create a digital prototype of a website, application or dashboard that will encourage citizens to be more mindful of their energy use at times of peak demand and encourage them to flexibly adapt their electricity use. Once you submit your application form you’ll then receive all the information you need to get your project started!
Alongside the prize money, the competition will allow you to showcase your ability to work in a team and to innovate, utilising real data from the all-island power system available on the EirGrid website. The winners of the competition will get the opportunity to present their concept to industry experts, with the chance for your project to be featured on EirGrid.ie!
The top three teams will be selected and invited to present their solution in front of the judging panel at the award ceremony.
