Predictive analytics to energy demand forecasting

Appleton Greene & Co Global – Urbanization trend of mega-cities, integration of infrastructures creates an impression of possible mega solutions of energy demand and supply. The practice shows the solutions are always specific and very often, unique. Matters like energy security, reliability and resilience goals differ geographically, nationally, according to the market and business.

Appleton Greene & Co Global – Accurate measurement and monitoring of water, electricity, and gas consumption, make full support to analyzing the energy demand, thus contribute to its predictability and predictability of the whole business. After a certain initial period of metering and sub-metering, it is possible to set and fulfill smart, measurable, attainable, reasonable and time-framed objectives of reduction of energy usage. Continuous metering will help the fine tuning of the settings, or detection of abnormal results, making possible quick decisions and errors reduction. In case of expected disaster, natural or technical, the company is prepared and can apply a short time preventive intelligent reaction.

Appleton Greene & Co Global – The energy management plan is prepared after gathering, processing and analysis of field data and the outcomes are: energy baseline, energy performance indicators, short-term and long-term goals and action plans. The task of the plan is to increase cost awareness of the organization, resulting in implementation of constant improvements of the energy demand management. Besides data collection from metering, the analytics require application of various analytical methods, for example seasonal spread, monthly or daily fluctuations, human behavior related, or even influence from the instability of the oil price. The ultimate goal is to embed a consistent framework of methods and approaches, in order to establish a proper predictability and management of all energies demand, with respect to the total business control.
