"Energy Hackathon" a complete platform for solving energy related challenges with a prime motto enabling Energy Access, Reducing Energy Waste and Improving Energy Efficiency and aims to solve the energy problems of Nepal through collaborative efforts of students and amateur working in Energy sectors. The three things you need to participate in the event are: Idea, Knowledge and curiosity. The participants will be provided with food, drinks(soft only), internet and mentors during the event.
With the recent developments in solar, wind, biogas energy generation, the alternative sources of energy are good areas of research and for newest technological implementation in various countries. In context of Nepal, only a small proportion of alternative energy is being utilized. This area focuses on such researches and technological developments.
Kathmandu valley has recently been declared as a load shedding free area. This is an initiation made possible using peak load demand management. But there are challenges on meeting total demand especially during peak hours (evening and morning). This category mainly focuses on peak hour load management and efficient load distribution.
Low energy efficiency is one of the major energy problems in Nepal. Energy losses during energy transmission, conversion and distribution are significant. Also, various energy consuming units (loads) consume more energy than the output they yield. Uncontrolled reactive power demand also falls on this category. Hence, this area is supposed to focus on such contemporary issues of electrical energy efficiency in Nepal.
