Europe is looking to lead the way to decarbonizing its economy and setting a global example. From the energy sector to advanced manufacturing and sustainable energy use, Europe is pushing the boundaries. Develop new solutions on GE's Predix platform to take decarbonization and sustainability to the next level.

Challenge 1: Electrification, presented by Eurelectric and EHPA

Electric vehicles, distributed renewable energy, and electric building heating can drive decarbonization and economic value.  The grid needs to keep up!  Innovate solutions for electrification, and evaluate decarbonization impact. Sample solutions: Renewable energy resource siting; electric heating & conversion to heat pumps analysis; EV charger siting; renewable energy integration.

Challenge 2: Advanced Manufacturing, presented by Stelia

Reducing the weight of aircraft components can drastically reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions. This implies manufacturing a new generation of aeronautics elementary parts. Access manufacturing data to optimize manufacturing processes, and decarbonize flight by accelerating the commissioning of a new generation of aircrafts. Sample solutions: Forecast manufacturing delays based on parts complexity; detect delay drifts and optimize critical production rescheduling.

Build solutions on Predix, the Industrial IoT platform. 

Create your FREE Predix account, and check out the tutorials. Also, FREE training will be provided for registered participants (see FAQ for details). Predix skills are required to be successful, but are easy to learn for experienced developers. You will need to know common programming languages (e.g. Java, JavaScript, Python), RESTful APIs, Cloud Foundry PaaS, OAuth. Prior IoT skills welcome, but not required.


  • One application may be submitted per team/submitter. Limit 5 people per team.
  • Teams must be registered via minds and machines conference website. Please register here: (€50 per person, or €250per team. Attendee type; hackathon).
  • Must solve a challenge for decarbonization in one of the two above categories.
  • Must use Predix platform and services, as primary IoT platform.
  • Submissions must be a web browser app (either mobile or desktop). All submissions must include an active URL where the app is deployed. 
  • Solutions should incorporate the Predix Developer Kit (will be supplied at hackathon).
  • New/Existing Applications: Both new and existing apps may be submitted, although judging will focus on app content delivered during hackathon. Please note that all apps must not rely on technology that has not yet been announced or introduced to the market.
  • Must agree to terms/conditions.
