About the NILM Workshop


The aim of the NILM Workshop is to bring together all the researchers that are working on the topic of energy disaggregation in both academia and industry. The primary goal is to provide a convenient forum to share common research goals and identify common themes for collaboration. The focus of this event will be on technical content, building upon the more introductory meet up we hosted in September 2014. Participation in the workshop is free.

Who should attend?

If you are an individual or an organisation interested in energy disaggregation then this is the workshop for you. The workshop is an open forum to encourage collaboration within the field and we welcome all levels of knowledge in this area, even if you are relatively new to NILM.

What is NILM?

NILM stands for Non Intrusive Load Monitoring. This is the process which disaggregates your total energy consumption into the energy readings of an appliance over a period of time, allowing users to see how much power a particular appliance has used during that time.
