Energy Demand Planning

Anticipate demand and energy generation to build accurate forecasts

Slide Two

Key Challenges

What is an accelerator?
Industry Accelerators are a packaged set of technical assets used to help you tackle your next data science project by addressing your most pressing business challenges. With sample data, notebooks, scripts, a sample application and more, you can kickstart your own implementation and leverage the power of Cloud Pak for Data.

  • Generating too much energy can lead to energy spillage, while undergeneration can result in widespread blackouts
  • It's difficult to predict precise behavior of renewable resources such as wind
  • Building optimization solutions with uncertainty involved can be computationally expensive
