Data Analytics & Optimization

Data analytics can help us solve today’s complex energy challenges. The influence of data science in the clean energy sector continues to expand with major algorithmic developments in machine learning, relentless growth in computing power and advancements in sensor technology and Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities.

Data comes in many different shapes, sizes and volumes. Manufacturing sites in particular, are in possession of mountains of industrial data that are often underutilized and ripe for value extraction. These incredible volumes of data, when combined with expert domain knowledge and advanced analytics capabilities, are poised to elucidate valuable insights never realized before in the clean energy sector.
