The Infrachain Challenge is a hackathon focused on Blockchain organized by Infrachain sponsored by the Ministry for Digitalisation.

Blockchain and DLT aficionados have 2 days to develop a solution that provides an innovative answer based on the Public Sector Blockchain.

At the end of the challenge, teams will provide a working demo and pitch in front of a jury composed of Blockchain and subject matter experts.

The event will be organised in such a way to fully respect the sanitary measures decided by the government and to respect social distancing.

The 3rd session of the Infrachain challenge is focused on the Public Sector Blockchain developed by the Ministry for Digitalisation and on accelerating public energy efficiency.

Teams will have 30 hours to develop an innovative project based on the Public Sector Blockchain and code a working demo. Each team will pitch their project in front of a jury and convince them that their solution is the best.

Context of the Hackathon Challenge

Energy markets are subject to inflation and energy prices have raised to unprecedented levels. In the current situation, the government has engaged itself with the European Commission to reduce energy consumption by 15% by March 2023. Public awareness campaigns for power saving have been launched across Europe, some of them also require each of us to make some fundamental shifts in our behavior.

In this context, the government is contributing through several initiatives. For example, heating levels have been adapted in public sector buildings for the winter season, which should have a significant impact. There is room for improvement, and technologies like blockchain and IoT (Internet of things) can play a major role to achieve even a higher range of energy economies.

The Hackathon Challenge

The challenge consists in conceiving and developing a solution based on blockchain combined with IoT in order to further optimize the energy consumption of the government. This can be addressed by optimizing energy usage in public buildings, by public infrastructure or any other public asset.
By the end of the challenge participants will have imagined and designed energy saving solutions which will help reduce energy usage in the public sector infrastructure.
