Understanding electricity demand for improved stimulation and forecasting at scale
ICT & Data Management: ICT for dynamic asset management and operations

Wednesday 16 October, 11.00 AM, Elicium 2

The project addresses a recurrent problem for the utility industries: the emulation and forecasting of complex demand behaviours within very large grids.
> Balancing production and demand using real-time control and at much lower levels of locality, e.g., city or neighbourhood levels.
> Modelling of energy demand at low levels of locality, and taking account drifts within the aggregated signals
> Real-time forecast applied to energy demand aggregated at low levels of locality translates into systems and analytics challenges
