Tacit Dimension was community partner of Open Knowledge Foundation Germany and Stromnetz Berlin for the Energyhack 2015 with the topic blackout. The situation called blackout occurs when electricity is gone for longer so that all other infrastructure relying on electric power starts to shut down. The hackday explored the use of open data and innovative technologies in a blackout situation.

Tacit Dimension offered rapid game design as a test and prototyping method for the projects being developed at the hackday.
