Are you interested in climate, technical and social innovations? Do you want to contribute to sustainable and affordable energy generation? Would you like to develop new concepts, products and/or services?

Take part in the international hackathon Empower on Saturday 1st of May! The hackathon offers a unique opportunity to collaborate with many different students, experts and professionals. Your idea can have an impact on the social energy transition in Europe. And...you have a chance to win a sustainable prize!

The European Green Deal is the roadmap for making the EU economy sustainable. This will only succeed if we use the climate and environmental problems in all policy areas as an opportunity to make the transition as fair and inclusive as possible for everyone.

By 2030 we want to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement: 40% less CO2 emissions. The European target is to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. Energy poverty is a widespread problem in Europe: between 50 and 125 million inhabitants cannot afford good thermal comfort indoors.
