For the past number of years tictoc have collaborated with Trinity College Dublin, with the department of statistics and computer science. The Collaboration started out with funding from Enterprise Ireland, tictoc utilising two Innovation vouchers, and the relationship has grown from there.
Together we have analysed half hourly consumption patterns for a 12 month period of over 6000 homes, wind farms, factories, supermarkets and hotels, from both qualitative and quantitative perspectives and recently analysing Electric Vehicle (EV) data gathered over a 6 month period with 12 EV drivers, a project done in conjunction with Italian Multi-Utility, Gruppo Hera. We are currently exploring distributed ledgers and blockchain to support a new energy trading model.
