  1. What SunnyDay is about?  A hackathon dedicated to development

    of renewable energy solutions  Joint work on developing solar concentrators  Team contest of hackers / engineers and developers  “Try-It-Out-Right-Away” approach  Informal communication and lots of FUN
  2. SunnyDay 2014 ➔ 8 hacker teams ➔ 34 hackers /

    engineers ➔ 126 participants ➔ Over 30 volunteers ➔ Loads of FUN and tech creativity
  3. Why solar concentrators? • One of the most promising renewable

    energy technologies • Easy to manufacture in non-industrial setting (home workshop) • Can be manufactured out of materials available at any hardware store • Make renewable energy more accessible and affordable
  4. Part of larger vision Generator + + + + Solar

    concentrator Steam engine Generator = = Electricty / Heat Solar concentrator Steam turbine Electricty / Heat We are thinking beyond cooking with solar concentrators...
  5. Why SunnyDay is special? All technologies developed at SunnyDay will

    be released as open-source tech drawings and documentation — anyone will be able to make the same devices (some examples here)
  6. Why SunnyDay is special? The event will not end just

    with awarding the winners and giving them prizes. It is about community and cooperation. The concentrators developed are intended to be produced in non- industrial / small-scale production settings (home workshop or hackerspace)
  7. What's new in 2015 • Going international. SunnyDay becomes international

    solar challenge. Solar hacker teams from all over the world are welcome! • More power. The concentrators developed this year will be times more powerful than those on last year's hackathon. • Global crowdfunding. We're crowdfunding globally to provide good rewards for bright minds and creative teams.
  8. Where and when • Ukraine • Mid-August 2015 • 5

    days of hacking, tech creativity, energy innovations, and fun • Stay tuned for the details ;)
