Value in Energy Data Webinar Series: An Update from the Presumed Open Data Challenge

Published: 6 May 2021

We would like to invite you to a special Value in Energy Data webinar which will be showcasing the top teams in the Presumed Open Data (POD) challenge which concluded this May 2021.

The POD project, led by Western Power Distribution, and partnered with Energy System Catapult and Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE), culminated in a data science challenge to celebrate the continued release of WPDs valuable datasets and to demonstrate the value of making energy data sets open.

This special “Value in Energy Data” Seminar will include a quick overview of the challenge and a short presentation of methods and results from the top five teams in the challenge.

Utilising PV generation data, demand data and weather variables, the objective of the challenge was for teams to design a future battery schedule for a low voltage network that would both reduce evening peak demand and maximise the use of locally generated PV energy. Hence the problem involved both designing an optimal control algorithm and developing forecasts to estimate demand and PV generation.

The challenge was spread over 7 weeks and include 5 tasks (including a practice task) and involved 55 teams of 142 individuals from 72 different institutions and 37 countries. This special “Value in Energy Data” Seminar will include a quick overview of the challenge and a short presentation of methods and results from the top five teams in the challenge.

AGENDA

The seminar will include the following presentations:

  • Introduction and challenge overview – Energy Systems Catapult & Western Power Distribution
