Proposed by:

ЕDP

Data Provider:

EDP

Challenge Name:

B2B Energy – Behavioural Predictive Model

Product Description

The proposal is focused on offering a big data analytics toolkit to support EDP in identifying main customer segments and classifying new contracts according to their likelihood of terminating the energy contract with the company (EDP) and also according to their likelihood of acquiring new services.

At the same time, the toolkit offers the possibility to identify the main properties of specific contracts with a given probability value within a segment to prepare specific campaigns or products, and to identify contracts similar to a reference contract that the company is interested in, or to filter-out clusters based on a specific attribute or list of attributes.

Usage of Standards for data interoperability:

We will use weather data of of typical meteorological year (TMY) from the Photovoltaic Geographical Information System (PVGIS), created by the European Commission. The TMY is generated in PVGIS following the procedure described in ISO 15927, ans is public access. TMY is formed by: Date and time, horizontal irradiance, Air pressure, Dry bulb temperature, Wind speed and direction, Relative humidity.

Company Description

Beedata Analytics translates smart meters data, customer and billing data into actionable intelligence for customer engagement and business intelligence . Beedata makes big data relevant, massive, friendly, useful and accessible for those energy retailers and DSO who want to take profit from the hidden information.

Our scope is on customer engagement to improve energy awareness and deepen customer relationships, and on business intelligence to help develop new services, and enhance the productivity of sales and client attention teams. Beedata was founded in April 2017, as a spin-off from a UPC research centre called CIMNE (www.cimne.com).

The big data analytics open source (EUPL 1.2 license) architecture based on Hadoop, emerged from several EU projects and was tested with 10 European utilities. In 2021we reach 13 clients, and 400.000 consumers.

In parallel, in 2020 we launched our service of massive support selling of PV systems, and our clients sold 4000 installations per year in 2021. In 2022, we launched the first solar calculator and engagement cloud based on hourly loads (100.000 consumers)
