On 4th May 2018, Taiger attended the hackathon of energy efficiency in buildings, organized in Valladolid by the administration and government of Castilla y León. In this hackathon, the CitiSim project was exposed and received a lot of attention from the attendees.
ENFOCA-2 together with AEICE carried out “DESAFIO EFICIENTE ENFOCA-2 AL TALENTO“, as a new model to identify and interconnect talent, attract ideas and projects to solve challenges established by several companies. The period of realization has been from April to June 2018. In total, four hackathons were organized. One of them was oriented to solve the challenge of raising energy efficiency in buildings and cities, and Taiger, in this context, presented CitiSim.
Iván Martínez, R&D Director of Taiger, presented to more than 30 companies in the IT and construction sector and administrations and public organizations the benefits of CitiSim if its implementation was carried out in a city. Success stories were presented from Spanish cities that carried out prototypes of smart city, and later Taiger went into detail in what CitiSim offers. Those attending the event seemed to be quite interested in the project and a list of contacts interested in obtaining more information about the project in the future was collected.
