Northern Territory National Innovation Games in Renewable Energy series

Games Feb 22, 2021

The Northern Territory Government, Industry Skills Advisory Council NT, National Energy Resources Australia and Darwin Innovation Hub have partnered with Paddl to deliver a series of three hackathon inspired challenges, as part of the National Innovation Games.

All challenges explore the overarching theme of 'Territorians discovering opportunity in Renewable Energy' and will address topics that include optimising energy use and hydrogen vehicles.

The growing renewable energy sector is critical to the Northern Territory's economy and NT's ability to meet the ambitious, but achievable target of 50% renewable energy by 2030. The series supports this commitment and further, provides a unique opportunity for emerging local talent and industry to connect.
