Special Issue Paper


This poster addresses the use of smart home data to continuously predict the aggregated energy consumption of individual households. We introduce a device level energy consumption dataset recorded over 3 years wich includes high resolution energy measurements from electrical devices collected within a pilot program. Using data from that pilot, we analyze the performance of various machine learning mechanisms for continuous short-term load prediction.
