  • エネルギー市場における機械学習の発展
  • エネルギー市場における機械学習の多くの利用事例
  • 機械学習活用への助言

It is hard to escape the hype surrounding artificial intelligence (AI). Blockchain is possibly the only other technology to command as many headlines as AI. Yet, there is a tangible difference between what is written about the two technologies. On the one hand, despite plenty of issues with blockchain, many in the media still effusively claim it will revolutionize the world in the same way as the internet. AI receives similarly gushing praise from some quarters—typically in technology and trade press, which extol the virtue of an increasingly automated future—but can be heavily criticized in mainstream press as a threat to employment or civilization itself.

Machine learning is an AI technology that is rapidly moving into the mainstream and is high on the agenda of many utilities. This report discusses machine learning in the context of other AI and analytics technologies, provides a brief description of how it works, and examines some recent high profile achievements. While machine learning is not new in parts of the utility value chain, despite some inherent limitations to the technology, various drivers will bring it out of pockets of excellence and thrust it into many other areas of the business.

This Navigant Research report describes several use cases for machine learning and examines why machine learning has an advantage over existing analytics techniques, including customer segmentation, pricing forecasts, anomaly detection, fraud detection, and predictive maintenance. Future requirements for machine learning—specifically for distributed energy resources (DER) management and transactive energy—are also discussed, as are several recommendations for utilities developing their machine learning strategies.

Key Questions Addressed:
  • What is machine learning?
  • How do machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) differ?
  • Why does machine learning get so much good and bad press?
  • Which use cases are most suited to machine learning?
  • Where could machine learning be applied in the future?

Machine Learning Has Several Advantages Over Existing Utility Analytics Techniques

Falling costs, new technological advancements, and a fresh approach to analytics procurement make machine learning deployments easier than ever

January 3, 2018

A new report from Navigant Research examines use cases for machine learning in the utilities industry, detailing its advantages over other analytics techniques, and providing future requirements and recommendations.

Machine learning is rapidly moving into the mainstream and is high on the agenda of many utilities. While the technology has existed in parts of the utility value chain for years, various drivers are expected to increase its use throughout other areas of the business.  According to a new report from Navigant Research, machine learning has several advantages over existing utility analytics techniques when performing customer segmentation, pricing forecasts, anomaly detection, fraud detection, and predictive maintenance.

“The utilities industry is already using self-learning algorithms, particularly in the field of asset monitoring and predictive maintenance, and several reasons suggest the use of machine learning will expand to many more use cases and its adoption will accelerate,” says Stuart Ravens, principal research analyst with Navigant Research. “During the past decade, it has become easier for companies to deploy machine learning thanks to falling costs, new technological advancements, a softening of conservative attitudes, and a fresh approach to analytics procurement.”

Utilities are encouraged to investigate how and where machine learning can help their businesses now and in the future, but should be aware of existing limitations. According to the report, machine learning is best suited for a handful of specific analytical processes, including clustering, regression, and classification.

The report, Machine Learning for the Digital Utility, describes several use cases for machine learning and examines why machine learning has an advantage over existing analytics techniques. Future requirements for machine learning—specifically for distributed energy resources (DER) management and transactive energy—are also discussed, as are several recommendations for utilities developing their machine learning strategies.
