About the NILM Workshop 2016
This year’s workshop is a collaborative effort between the organisers of EU NILM 2014 and EU NILM 2015 and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). The aim of the European NILM conference series is to bring together all of the European researchers that are working on the topic of energy disaggregation in both industry and academia. The aim of EPRI is to facilitate a collaborative dialogue between industry stakeholders – manufacturers, utilities and researchers, to create opportunities to enable technology maturation and market adoption of NILM devices in the European market.
The workshop will feature two full days of conference-style material from research and applications, building on the previous European workshops held in London, and EPRI’s workshops held in Palo Alto, CA and Orlando, FL. Please check out our “Call for Presentations” to find out what you can contribute!
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. In case you can’t join us in person, we also hope to live-stream the presentations via YouTube to allow for remote viewing. However, we do encourage you to attend so you benefit from the networking opportunities, which offer real value and the ability to meet fellow researchers in the industry.
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.
Date & Venue
Date:Monday 17th – Tuesday 18th October 2016
