8: ClimateHack.AI Workshop

Date: 8th December 2023 (Friday 5pm)

πŸ’‘ Climate Hack.AI has been launched! This workshop is all about helping you get started with this hackathon, providing tips and tricks to improve your model to move up the leaderboardπŸ™ŒπŸΌ.

Motivation: The National Grid ESO currently relies on expensive and carbon-intensive natural gas generators to compensate for the variability of solar PV power production. By incorporating satellite imagery into near-term solar PV forecasting models, the ESO can improve the accuracy of these forecasts and reduce its reliance on natural gas generators.

We will be going over each stage of the ML flow from preprocessing data to choosing and training your models, so that you can develop one for site-level PV forecasting over the next four hours that is both accurate and performant. Your contributions could directly help cut carbon emissions in Great Britain by up to 100 kilotonnes per year!! πŸ’‘
