Modelling the impact of low carbon technology adoption on energy consumption using generative AI
Our relationship with Octopus Energy means we have access to one of the largest UK smart meter datasets. Ten of thousands of Octopus Energy customers own some form of low carbon technology, such as electric vehicles, heat pumps, solar PV and home batteries. How these customers currently behave can provide important insights for those interested in the energy system of the future. We’re sharing the utility of these insights via a generative AI model called Faraday.
Partners we’ve worked with in the past have highlighted the value of our smart meter dataset in advancing research, helping policymakers and shaping the Distribution Network Operator (DNO) to Distribution System Operator (DSO) transition. We therefore wanted to unlock its utility for the energy community, whilst strictly protecting customer data and privacy.
