Novec EXpansion Identification System

SYST/OR 699 Capstone Project

Problem Statement

NOVEC uses publicly available information to create short term and long term load forecasts and material planning.  Currently, NOVEC uses regional data to determine their forecasts.  This does not adequately reflect where development is happening in a county and where energy demands will change.  With more localized data, NOVEC will be able to predict future energy demands and infrastructure needs in the short and long term with more precision.
