Next meeting July 15th, 2021 – 17:00 CEST (Central European Summer Time)

Zoom Meeting:

The IEEE Task Force (TF) on Open Data Sets makes power and energy-related data sets available whenever confidentiality and data property issues do not prevent their public use.

These data are intended to be used by researchers and other professionals working in power and energy-related areas and requiring data for design, development, test, and validation purposes. These data should not be used for commercial purposes.

Call for participation: Competition on building energy consumption forecasting

The competition will be held during a full business week (14-18 June 2021). Each day of this week participants will be asked to provide their consumption forecasts for the following day.

A Full Year of historical data is already available to enable participants to start building and refining the forecasting models. Please check the competition website for details and register to have access to the first data set:

Authors of methods that present the best results in this competition will be invited as panelists in a dedicated Panel: to take place at the 2021 IEEE Power & Energy Society General Meeting – 25-29 July 2021 (Virtual Event).
