AI for Energy: Transitioning toward a Sustainable Energy System
In this Omdena challenge with the World Energy Council, the community will apply AI to understand how citizens of the world perceive their role in accelerating the pace of energy transition and their awareness of the associated social risks, opportunities and costs.
Energy transition: A global problem
We are working to identify and understand the many levers of humanizing the Energy Transition – The World Energy Council working with Omdena is launching a global challenge to understand how citizens of the world perceive their role within the energy transition.
Ultimately, the Council is aiming to measure and track public sentiment on emerging issues relating to the social impacts of accelerating energy transition and progressing decarbonization of the whole economy. This challenge aims at increasing awareness of potential social barriers and unexpected risks to the energy transition. Omdena is a collaborative platform where organizations work with a diverse AI community to build human-empowered solutions for real-world problems.

The goal: Applying AI for understanding energy transition
The collaborators will analyze the sentiment of people in different parts of the world on emerging issues relating to the social impacts of accelerating energy transition and progressing decarbonization of the whole economy. We will use social media data, newspaper articles, and additional resources.
Why you should join the challenge
The partner organization, World Energy Council, is a global and inclusive forum for thought-leadership. Its mission is ‘To promote the sustainable supply and use of energy for the greatest benefit of all people’.
For the next two months, you will not only build AI solutions to make a real-world impact but also go through an entire data science project lifecycle. This covers problem scoping, data collection and preparation, as well as modeling for potential deployment.
And the best part is that you will be part of a global collaboration.
The World Energy Council is a thought-leadership forum with a network of over 3,000 organisations and member committees in over 90 countries.
Accredited by the United Nations, the Council is the world’s leading member-based global energy network. The council is independent and non-political, working dynamically across the whole energy sector.
The AI for Good Global Summit is THE leading action-oriented, global & inclusive United Nations platform on AI. The Summit is organized by the ITU with XPRIZE Foundation, in partnership with UN Sister agencies, Switzerland and ACM.
