EMPOWERING, a Smart Big Data Framework for Sustainable Electricity Suppliers
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents the EMPOWERING project, a Big Data environment aimed at helping domestic customers to save electricity by managing their consumption positively. This is achieved by improving the information received about energy bills and offering online tools. The main contributions of EMPOWERING are the creation of a novel workﬂow in the electricity utility sector regarding the implementation of data analytics for their customers and the fast implementation of data-mining techniques in massive datasets within a Big Data platform to achieve scalability. The results obtained show that EMPOWERING can be of use for customers of electrical suppliers by changing their energy habits to decrease consumption and so increase environmental sustainability.
