In 2017, TESLA was the only overseas firm to win among 100+ entries in TEPCO’s (Tokyo Electric Power Company) First Electricity Load Forecasting Technology Contest. This was TESLA’s first time forecasting electricity demand in Japan, providing the team with invaluable experience in this newly deregulated market. After the contest, TESLA expanded from 1 region with 1 weather station powered by a single weather forecast vendor to 9 regions with 49 weather stations powered by three different weather forecast vendors.
