Astrosat Thermal Impact & Energy Challenge
Astrosat was looking for new solutions that use Copernicus data to clearly identify the overconsumption of energy in urban areas.
Energy companies and local authorities require a comprehensive understanding of total energy use in order to better allocate resources and implement cost-saving measures for consumers. Copernicus data, together with in situ-data or socio-demographic data, has the potential to support the sector with this goal.
Submissions can focus on one specific aspect of the energy sector or can address multiple related aspects such as urban living or impact of pollution on health in urban areas. Likewise, solutions can be designed to support more than just energy companies and local authorities, instead targeting specific groups of end users and tying in platforms that are already available such as smart wearables. Submissions must do more than simply aggregate and present a visualisation of data on a map.
Do the key attributes of the solution present a new or novel approach to energy and health management?
Do the solution’s data processing capabilities provide reliable, efficient and accurate support?
Taking the different user groups into consideration, how easy is the solution to use?
Does the solution gather, process and present the data in a way that provides useful and timely support?
Astrosat is a private sector, commercial, satellite applications company based in Edinburgh, Scotland.
