The PLATOON Data Analytics toolbox is formed of all the data analytics tools that are developed and validated for the different use cases of the project. These tools will allow the extraction of value from heterogeneous data sources. There will be two main groups of data analytics tools:
Data in the energy domain grows at unprecedented rates and is usually generated by heterogeneous energy systems.
Despite the great potential that big data-driven technologies can bring to the energy sector, general adoption is still lagging. Several challenges related to controlled data exchange and data integration are still not wholly achieved. As a result, fragmented applications are developed against energy data silos, and data exchange is limited to few applications.
