4th International Workshop on Data Analytics in the Energy Sector

Background and Goals:

The constantly increasing momentum of big data, and the increasing adoption of leading-edge information and communication technologies, constitutes an unprecedented market opportunity for improving energy efficiency and management. More specifically, the building sector and its lifecycle, power networks, smart grids and energy systems are sectors that are expected to take advantage of these technologies, aiming to improved operations and efficiency and providing added value for all the stakeholders.

With the rising availability of large datasets, being generated in every layer of the value chain in buildings and energy systems, new applications and services that will maximise energy efficiency and performance will be deployed. Hence, new methodologies and techniques are needed, in order to develop holistic applications that incorporate these emerging technologies and facilitate the transition into this digitised solutions environment.

In this context, this Workshop will focus on highlighting applications and cases that make use of data and appropriate techniques for the decision support of energy stakeholders, such as network operators, utilities, energy suppliers, building managers, investors and financiers, local and regional authorities, policy makers towards energy efficiency goals, through the use of the latest technology.

This Workshop is also based on the research activities of the HE DigiBUILD, DEDALUS, ENPOWER, Crete Valley, Hedge-IoT, METABUILD, BuildON and ENERGATE.
