Poster summary

This project focuses on analysing load and temperature data collected from utility companies in the US, consisting of 20 load zones with varying patterns of hourly load values and 11 temperature stations with distinct locations. The objective is to identify patterns and correlations between temperature data and load values for each zone and develop a predictive model for load values using machine learning algorithms. A thorough data exploration was conducted to examine potential correlations between temperature stations and load values in each zone. In cases where strong correlations were found, the temperature data from the correlated station was utilized to predict load values in the corresponding zones. However, in instances where strong correlations were not identified, a method was devised to select temperature data from a station and incorporate it into machine learning algorithms for predicting load values in each load zone.
