Abstract

Smart meters are becoming ubiquitous around the world, and their use is even being legally mandated in some countries. This increased use of smart meters has led to a flurry of research activity surrounding the analysis of smart meter data. However, much of this work relates to consumer smart grids, and there exists limited work on analysing data in a campus-style environment. In this work, we illustrate the unique challenges next-day electricity load consumption forecasting in a heterogeneous campus environment entails, and develop methods to enhance a cluster-based forecasting technique to address these challenges. We develop a method to easily incorporate external information to the predi..
