|PONTON Hackathon Project: Trading Flexibility in the Microgrid|
PONTON participated last weekend at a hackathon at the Energie Campus of the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, called “What the data!?”, organised by Cybus and made it among the winners! Goal of the hackathon was to use a range of technical devices through a unified SCADA APIs that has been developed by Cybus for monitoring and control. The devices are typical consumers or generators of energy such as a battery, an electric vehicle, an electrolyser, a CHP plant, a methaniser, etc. PONTON contributed with the demo “blockchain-based energy market in the microgrid” which has created some extraordinary interest.
