How Big Data is Being Used to Solve Energy Problems in Retail

Retail energy management is rapidly evolving to become more data-centric than ever. With the advent of cloud computing, sophisticated monitoring technology and analytics software, and the ability to process large data sets, energy management systems are now able to not just measure and report on energy usage but can even predict it based on history and other factors such as expected weather, projected sales volume, and other related metrics. This session will focus on tools and processes that harness Big Data in order to create, monitor, manage, optimize, and prioritize energy reduction opportunities. The panel will discuss various examples of Big Data energy technology and real world implementations and results in the retail sector.
