A C.O.D.E. contest of ideas ends

02 February 2018

The second round of the C.O.D.E. Contest of Ideas, organized as part of the USAID project “Transparent Energy Sector”, was held on 1 February at DiXi Group’s office. Eight teams presented their projects to the Contest Commission.

In the end, the following two projects were selected:

- formation of a nationwide base of potential facilities for energy service, and implementation of an energy monitoring system;

- creation of an internet portal-based utility bill handling option (making payments of utility bills with a payment transaction visualization option, keeping consumption statistics, etc.).

In addition, the Contest Commission recommended to merge the project featuring development of an interactive map of oil and gas producers in the Ciscarpathian region with the project envisaging creation of an online instrument for visualization of daily coal mine output data.

Results of the first round of the contest of ideas were announced in November 2017.

The contest of ideas concerning the handling of open data in the energy sector (C.O.D.E.) is held as part of the USAID project “Transparent Energy Sector”. Ideas must concern development of services, visualizations and other instruments and products that use any set of existing data in the energy sector. When developing their ideas, the participants were proposed to use information and data available on the Energy Map of Ukraine, NCREUS’s and Energy Ministry’s websites, etc.
