The client develops, sells and services energy analytics software to renewable energy producers, OEMs, transmission and distribution utilities, and other energy companies.

Business Requirements

Indium Software’s approach focused on two use cases:

  • Demand Forecasting
  • Survival Analysis

Demand Forecasting Problem

  • The data flux from the Weather reports, Energy Consumption and IoT Sensor data is of high frequencies and volumes.
  • Using the data, create a model of High Accuracy and Less Variance forecasting values.

Survival Analysis Problem

  • Use of data sources from Weather forecast reports, Wind Turbine sensor data from a large number of wind turbines.
  • Predict failures in advance to leave enough device repair and maintenance time.
