Open Talk: Improving Energy Efficiency Using Data and Behavioral Science

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Opower uses principles of Behavioral Science and Data Science to drive energy efficiency for millions of households across the globe. In this talk, Data Scientist Ben Packer will describe the various ways Opower is able to drive energy savings and how we rigorously measure everything we do. He will take a deeper technical dive into how Machine Learning can be applied to energy data to determine household properties such as how much energy is used on heating and cooling, and how these insights can help people better understand their energy usage and drive further savings.
