About The Role
As the Research Fellow, you will work on two projects funded by the Centre for New Energy Technologies (C4NET). First project is co-funded by C4NET and CSIRO, with a particular focus on predicting precinct level energy use using data from buildings and other mobility patterns, leveraging Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL) models. In this project, you will work on predicting precinct level energy use using data from buildings and other mobility patterns. A data driven energy consumption model that utilizes building data and mobility data will be developed. This model can inform energy use behaviour for optimally managing urban infrastructure during normal periods and extreme events.
The second C4NET project is co-funded by GWMWater and Gippsland Water, in collaboration with Federation University and will have you work on analysing energy use for demand response for optimising water utility operations.
