This course offers a unique opportunity to analyse, forecast, and optimise energy flexibility and demand using data science and artificial intelligence techniques. The course focuses on practical use cases in the energy sector, providing a comprehensive introduction to data science with a hands-on approach. Participants will learn how to use Python and other tools to analyse and visualise energy demand data, as well as how to share their results with other stakeholders using advanced dashboards.
Throughout the course, students will gain practical knowledge of state-of-the-art tools for monitoring and experimenting with energy datasets. They will also explore the limitations of machine learning models and how they rely on time series and statistical principles to forecast energy demand. Participants will learn how to optimize the behavior of energy flexible resources using arbitrary cost functions, tracking their experiments using cutting-edge tools.
Designed based on industry requirements and feedback from hundreds of learners, this course is the fifth iteration of a successful collaboration between EIT InnoEnergy and several leading European partner universities, including KU Leuven, KTH, UPC, and Grenoble INP.
Course dates: 22 July – 02 August 2024
Effort Level: 60 to 80 hours, spread over two weeks.
Course costs: 3,950 EUR (this course is free of charge for EIT InnoEnergy master’s students)
Delivery: Hybrid course offered online with the possibility of face-to-face sessions at KU Leuven and KTH Royal Institute of Technology (locations to be confirmed based on demand)
This course on energy data science is designed for EIT InnoEnergy master’s students who wish to learn how to streamline existing workflows and develop new services through data-driven decision making. The course content is applicable to a wide range of energy careers, including working in energy aggregators, system operators, and utilities.
Students of the Master’s in Energy for Smart Cities obtain 3 ECTS from following this course.
