Business Problem

With increasing customer base and subsequent demand for energy, energy providers were facing significant challenges in their ability to forecast demand on a real-time basis.

  • Lack of systems to capture meter- level data, store and process it to derive business insights.

  • Implemented the following modules: Data Platform and Data Lake, Load Forecasting, Risk Management and Load Scheduling.
  • Developed a risk management tool which allows REPs (Retail Energy Providers) to make decisions based on the usage patterns.
  • Built a load scheduling tool, which allows to schedule bids and offers needed by REPs, Utilities, Scheduling Coordinators and Traders.
  • Tested different forecasting models with multiple validations built with hybrid models.

Value Delivered

  • The grid is fully autonomous and reliable.
  • Ability to derive insights in a real time manner to meet fluctuating demand.
