Data Analytics Facilitating Net Zero Energy Systems

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


In 2019, the UK was the first to embrace a legal obligation to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. The energy sector plays a vital role to deliver this target, as transportation, energy supply, commercial use of electricity & heating homes accounts for about 80% of emissions. Consequently, demand electrification and increased renewable generation became the major pathway in addressing climate change.
Artificial Intelligence and big data are transforming the world, in many sectors from banking, insurance to healthcare. In this talk, we introduce some recent work carried out in Queen’s University Belfast on smart grid data analytics to facilitate Net Zero Energy Systems. This includes (1) estimation of aggregated small scale solar generation, which is unseen to the power system operators and introduces large volatility to the electric net demand. (2) monitoring the health of the power networks, reliably detecting abnormal behaviours (e.g. oscillations), diagnosing the failures, and taking control actions.
