Flexibility in energy management is essential to avoid costly reinforcements of the power system and to maintain secure supply while increasing the penetration of renewable sources. This is a delicate balance, where algorithms can help battery charging systems to be as efficient as possible For instance, buy more energy when its price is lowest, and buy less or sell energy when its price is highest.
Challenge: Develop an energy demand forecasting system to help automated energy management systems and building managers reduce costs.
According to the World Health Organization, 390 million people are infected by dengue every year, with 2 out of 5 children at risk of being infected. The Americas, South-East Asia and Western Pacific regions are the most seriously affected, with Asia representing ~70% of the global burden of disease.
Challenge: develop an accurate forecasting system that can predict dengue outbreak 8 to 16 weeks in advance for effective preventive measures.
