About this course

The Internet of Things (IoT) revolution, such as the vast spread of smart meters worldwide, is generating massive amounts of energy data, drastically transforming the sector and current energy systems. This digital transformation gives rise to more intelligent ways of managing energy and brings about opportunities for energy companies to improve their business models and services.  

If you’re looking to extract insights from the energy big data to boost your business and create value-added services, this course is for you. Over a period of six weeks, you will learn how to develop and implement data science projects in energy businesses, and will work with real life cases that need to be tackled with data science.

This course is targeted at senior operations personnel in energy utilities (distribution system operators, energy suppliers) and industry, as well as at energy entrepreneurs looking to improve the value of their companies.

How does the course boost your career?

With this course, you will be able to:

  • Explain how data science can bring value to the energy sector (through big data from IoT solutions, end consumers etc).
  • Evaluate the implications, challenges and benefits of implementing data science projects in an energy company.
  • Apply lessons learned from real-life business cases in which data science was applied to energy big data.
  • Supervise the development and implementation of a data science project and create  new value with the available data.
