Energy systems are undergoing rapid transformations and information about these changes in energy infrastructure including growth in behind-the-meter solar and expansion of transmission and distribution lines is important for research and system planning. Those data, however, are not always available in a timely manner or at the high spatial resolution needed for meaningful analysis. The goal of the Energy Data Analytics Lab at the Duke University Energy Initiative is to work towards a global, automated assessment of energy resources and infrastructure to understand the pathways to sustainably meet energy needs.
Our special guest is Dr. Kyle Bradbury M.S.'08, Ph.D.'13, Lecturing Fellow and Managing Director, Energy Data Analytics Lab. In this session, he will discuss the team’s work on how machine learning techniques can unlock data on energy system visibly present in satellite and aerial imagery with applications to electricity systems infrastructure.
