Estimating Climate Change Impacts on Electricity Demand

In this project we focus on estimating the effects of climate change, particularly changes to temperature and humidity, to electricity demand. To understand these effects, we begin by focusing on the Tennessee valley area, in the United States, and develop load forecasting models using historical data for the total electricity demand of the region. These models are then fed future projections of temperature and humnidity from global climade models in order to forecast electricity demand in future decades until the end of the century.

My research interests vary, but generally gravitate towards the development of technologies to make our built enviornment and the communities in them more autonomous and efficient.
