Welcome to DARE'17!

Climate change, the depletion of natural resources and rising energy costs have led to an increasing focus on renewable sources of energy. A lot of research has been devoted to the technologies used to extract energy from these sources; however, equally important is the storage and distribution of this energy in a way that is efficient and cost effective. Achieving this would generally require integration with existing energy infrastructure.

The challenge of renewable energy integration is inherently multidisciplinary and is particularly dependant on the use of techniques from the domains of data analytics, pattern recognition and machine learning. Examples of relevant research topics include the forecasting of electricity supply and demand, the detection of faults, demand response applications and many others. This workshop will provides a forum where interested researchers from the various related domains will be able to present and discuss their findings.
