Last Call For PropTech Hackathon Submissions

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority is calling for final submissions for this year’s Real Time Energy Management (RTEM) H*ckathon. The state sponsored program has created an API to share real-world anonymized RTEM data from over 200 buildings. The data sources include building automation systems, connected devices, utility meters, equipment submeters, and IoT sensors. Participants must demonstrate novel use cases for the data with a focus on enabling decarbonization through building electrification.

Participants will receive credentials to access the RTEM database API via Python as well as access to documentation on Github and ReadTheDocs. The competition will be judged and will give out $55,000 in prize money. First place will get $35,000, second place $15,000, and third place $5,000.

Registration ends on 4/15 and submissions are due by 5/30. Any interested technologist or data scientists should register here.
