I don't know of any such venture, Beth. I was just thinking aloud about what else might be done in this same realm. I'm sure other more creative, technically proficient minds could come up with better ideas and proposals.

Agreed, Terry. Do you know of any such joint, collaborative projects underway?

How about an adjunct program/investment with the Department of Energy, and the agencies most closely connected to weather forecasting (National Weather Service, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Center for Atmospheric Research), which are already using predictive analytics for long-term forecasting. And what if they did some sort of govt-industry R&D with energy and transport companies? This gets really interesting really quickly.

I signed up with SAS a few weeks ago. I've received a few emails from them and invites to join their online discussions. So, it will be interesting to see what the future holds for the idea and just how they'll keep in contact with those who have registered interest.

Yes, Beth is right. Much of the impetus behind my interest in innovative energy development comes from my interest in transportation, especially electric public transportation. And I'm definitely keeping my feelers out for how analytics is involved.

Interesting site, Lyndon. Thanks for sharing. I would imagine energy sources and energy consumption dovetails well with your interest in transportation! Do let us know if you encounter any good examples of analytics use among utilities!

Energy, analytics, and future power

Interesting blog post, Beth.

I gotta say, UNC Charlotte's EPIC program and emphasis on improving energy production via analytics is quite encouraging. Energy issues (especially has they relate to future electric power generation) have become a particularly exciting professional interest of mine — I've even started a website, Future Power Now.

Sustainable, safe, environmentally sound energy production has truly become a dominant issue for modern society and its level of civilization and quality of life. I have a very strong hunch that analytics has a powerful role to play in addressing this challenge.

@bulk, I know you're pursuing a PhD, right (I think I saw you mention that on today's message board for our A2 Academy session). Do you have access to the software you'll need in "real-time" in your studies?
