Our Open Culture initiative is ideal for all those who want to be part of energy innovation and of our EnergyTech community. Ignitis Innovation Hub regularly organizes EnergyTech hackathons, innovation culture events and other educational activities for local and international communities.
Open Culture is one of the most important Open Innovation pillars that enables us to communicate about #EnergySmart solutions, discuss and stimulate interest in the energy sector.
Therefore, Ignitis in cooperation with the Vilnius city municipality established program – Intelligent Energy Lab (www.iel.lt) and the Energy and Technology Museum has created an educational program – “Ignitis Classroom”.
The program organized by museum’s trained guides and educators is designed for 6th to 11th graders. By attending the “Ignitis Classroom” pupils get familiar with the basic theoretical concepts of the electricity, its generation and consumption as well as dive into the world of energy innovation, smart devices, electric vehicles, renewables and climate change.
Ignitis Innovation Hub periodically organizes various Smart Energy Hackathons that bring energy innovators together and promote innovation within the energy sector. Local and international hackathons gather teams of students, professionals and enthusiasts and involve various topics – e-mobility, smart grid, energy digitalization, flexibility services and many other.
Open hackathons not only promote the Smart Energy culture but also provide a hands-on experience of real energy issues and provide a different perspective for Ignitis group on solving them.
