Upcoming Event: Hackday in #Manchester on #climate calculator. #MadLab Thurs Nov 28th

Madlab is awesome. Geeks are awesome. Getting to the bottom of the Department of Energy and Climate Change’s “carbon calculator” would be awesome. #rearrangingdeccchairs
This day, it will be… awesome.

DECC 2050 Calculator Hackday

  • Thursday, November 28, 2013 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

  • MadLab  36-40 Edge Street, Manchester (map)

  • Carbon Co-op, OpenEnergyMonitor and URBED are organising a Hackday in Manchester for the DECC 2050 Calculator and inviting programmers, policy makers, academics and interested parties to attend.

    DECC’s 2050 Calculator is a new tool to assist the general public and civic society in assessing how the UK can meet its 2050 carbon emission obligations whilst keeping the lights on.


    The tool is open source with source code available here:

    After a DECC event held in September in Manchester (http://blog.decc.gov.uk/2013/09/17/the-british-energy-challenge-manchester-discussion/) to showcase the tool, a number of people expressed an interest in hacking the tool in order to test the ambitions of demand reduction and renewable generation.

    We are organising a one day HackDay at MadLab in Manchester to expand, develop and test the tool with these applications in mind.

    We are inviting programmers, policy makers and interested parties along. The day is a hacklab, unstructured without formal agenda.

    Please indicate if you would like to attend.
