Over 150 developers, designers, and clean energy professionals come together to build solutions for the clean energy industry, with the chance to win $10K in cash prizes.
SunCode has resulted in the formation of the following companies: Powerhive, SunSwarm, UtilityAPI, Nanogrid, and OhmConnect.
The industry sponsors this year are: Tesla, Schneider Electric, Vestas, Sunrun, and Nissan Renault. Powerhouse provides plenty of beer, food, good company, and networking opportunities throughout the weekend.
You can come as an individual or form a team at the event. You're able to hack on your own challenges or the technical challenges offered up by the industry sponsors. In some cases, the industry sponsors are providing access to datasets and temporary integration with APIs for the event. The judges for the event are software and product heads at Sunrun, Tesla, Schneider, Nissan Renault, and Vestas.
