TESLA is proud to be the only overseas firm to win among 100+ entries in TEPCO’s (Tokyo Electric Power Company) First Electricity Load Forecasting Technology Contest. Participation in the contest provided us with invaluable load forecasting experience in Japan. We expect further improvement in accuracy now that we have identified more granular weather and load data. Currently, we’re developing load forecast models for all 10 major power companies in Japan. The models are being developed with public data and are available for to trial for free.
