  1. IoT Data Analytics appliance for the EU energy market (14:00 – 16:00) – with Dragos Nicola, Data Scientist at InflectionPoint, and Remus Octavian Cimpean, Data Science Consultant at InflectionPoint

Context: EU commission regulates the Energy Market across Europe in terms that of all distributors have to install Smart Meters to consumption points. This situation creates a new type of business opportunities/problems: address distributors needs to know customers’ behavior by analyzing data streams captured from the Smart Meters combined in the contractual details.

Players in the market:

  • Energy Distributor: Data Owner
  • IT companies: Data Processors and System Integrators
  • Data Science Companies: Data Analytics/Modeling Architecture (Data & Analytics approach – InflectionPoint)

Approach: Due to the fact that EU Energy Market is a liberalized one, customers churn risk assessment becomes a crucial problem for Energy Distributors. Such a problem can be addressed only through predictive modelling, which is a matter of Data Science appliance. Given that Energy Distributors will have IT partners for data streams connectivity and processing, the knowledge developed by a Data Science company becomes the core knowledge in this equation.

Topics for the workshop:

  • – energy problem description
  • – data science solution presentation
  • – tools for implementation
  • – demo on the data science solution
  • – discussion on business development in this area
  • – data science solution scalability add deployment into client environment
  • – IT/Data Science partnership framework for solution architecture and implementation.
