Presentation Description: For most renewable energy stakeholders, the next couple of years are expected to be very busy, and most teams will be overloaded. A common conversation within organizations is how to scale for 2020 and 2021 while knowing that the years following could be lean. All of this will happen while margins continue to decrease. This leaves us trying to perform twice the amount of work with the same number of people, all while increasing accuracy and reducing uncertainty in energy assessments. To accomplish this, we must improve efficiency, reproducibility, traceability, and how we distribute results.
Fortunately, other industries have solved these problems, and their technologies are available to all of us. These tools are mostly based on open-source developers’ efforts over the past five to ten years and are now hosted for free by companies like Google. This presentation will demonstrate three to five freely-available solutions that address the improvements organizations will be required to adopt to stay competitive beyond 2021.
Experience how notebooks (Python or R) can instantly turn an analysis into an interactive report, and how a notebook can be more powerful than a spreadsheet.
Understand continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) as a framework for distributing real-time tools within a team or organization.
Learn about community migration as an adoption problem rather than solely focusing on the technology side of things.
