2nd Open Call
Cartiere del Garda is a paper mill factory that deployed a massive 50Mwh co-generator. Part of its produced energy is used within the factory, while the unused is offered to the national grid. The process is demand-driven: Cartiere del Garda deliver a forecast on the amount of energy that it will offer in the upcoming two days, and errors on such a forecast lead to monetary penalties imposed by the energy provider.
With the GEM-Analytics framework we collect actual and forecasted data and crunch it through AI-based algorithms. By doing so, we will digitise and automate what is currently a human process, let machines learn and store knowledge that could be lost, and improve the quality of the estimation. Indeed, our performance KPI is to reduce the aforementioned penalties by at least 20%.
