Another company proves, yet again, the value of hiring dedicated Researchers

When asked for feedback on the success of Connect Canada’s Internship Program, Screaming Power CEO, Gary Michor, stated how influential Ryerson University has been in “helping direct our business strategy and product evolution decisions based on their research”.
Screaming Power partnered with Ryerson University last year in an effort to utilize some PhD candidate students to assist them in their Energy and Big Data research. These students were asked to complete comprehensive research on building profiling and weather normalization. Screaming Power and its Industry Advisors required analyzing weather data for the effect of different variables (i.e., temperature, humidity, and wind), in order to validate an initial theory and improve the existing weather normalization algorithm typically used in the Energy Market today.
“The benefits of having this weather data stored in a Big Data warehouse has led us to investigate new avenues for additional research…The results from this research will allow us to create processes to store the relevant weather data in our Big Data warehouse and develop tools to present the results of the improved weather normalization algorithm through our mobile application,”
As stated by Michor, “A technology company working in a pioneering market building a new data ecosystem requires innovative research. Having access to reasonably-priced and high-quality research staff and facilities is critical”. That being said, all businesses, whether in the start-up or mature stage of their lifecycle, should look to consider utilizing the resourceful knowledge of university students and internship programs. And together, we can all scream ‘POWER’. .
