Eligibility Criteria: 
use of the Air-conditioner Location Running Hours Data under Industry on the GovHack data page

Prize Value $2000

Did you know that climate and humidity can influence the efficiency of refrigerated equipment like air-conditioners? Use the Air-conditioner Location Running Hours Data to help people better understand their appliance running costs. See how smart meters help households control their electricity.

Must use the Air-conditioner Location Running Hours Data under Industry on the GovHack data page


Team Name: 

I'm a student of data science that can't code. I wanted to join some data sets together to inform the public about NSW local government areas (LGAs). The visualisations have been created using tableau public which means anyone can access the underlying work books and, for those that don't, the data sources are all accredited and linked to for direct access.

Level 6.3

We see open government data as a chance for the government to inform its citizens, and for the citizens to inform the government; as a chance to foster communication and cooperation. In our project, we ask: where is infrastructure sufficient, and where are services lacking? If I want to move to a different suburb, where are my needs and interests best catered for?

Saving energy is becoming even more crucial in the modern age, but how do we find out what the long term impact of different lifestyle choices will be on our overall energy consumption?

How much energy will running an AC at home take in a typical summer day?

What will be the overall effect of adding another fridge to the house?


Team Name: 
Team GoshAwks

After much deliberation, and many blocked turns, our team finally nailed down a plan to develop an air conditioner recommendation application late on Saturday night. 

To do this, we collated the air conditioner cooling data and energy rating for air conditioners datasets.

The Energy Analyser

Team Name: 

How can we reduce energy consumption in Australia? Do consumers know how they rank in energy use amongst people with the same social profile.

The Energy Analyser can help contextualise energy use for people and provide recommendations to reduce the cost of energy bills. The tool offers the following functionality:

Team Name: 
AC Mapper

The project aims at viewing an interactive web-map of household smart-meter data for Air-conditioner Location Running Hours Data.

This is a desktop, tablet and mobile compatible web-mapping application for whole of Australia where the users can view, measure and query data to manage their energy and make better decisions. The datasets used are the climate zones and the Air-conditioner Location Running Hours.

Air Compare

Team Name: 

With summers growing hotter and hotter each year, Australians have become increasingly dependant on their air conditioners. However, excessive power consumption during this period continues to deteriorate Australia’s environment and its citizens’ wallets. Air Compare aims to rectify this issue, by providing Australians with an idea of the most efficient air conditioner for them, in terms of usage and entailed costs, ultimately attempting to reduce their power consumption.
