Will be interesting to see the results of the first Solar hackaton… The fact that the hackatons are becoming more specific is good, too many have just been “green” and just presented data in new ways without any thoughts of real world impact. Hopefully we will soon see open platforms that allow transformation solutions as well.
Would be good if someone could provide reosurces to develop best practice for the hackatons, and ensure that the impact can be measured a few months after the hacktons, it is not clear what happens with the ideas today in most cases. Would also be good to map the focus of the solutions (looks like it is mainly incremental with a focus on the US situation and it might be good to encourage other solutions as well.)
