The transition of energy systems towards decentralisation and decarbonisation creates novel challenges to energy system management, which necessitates a shift to more intelligent control of the whole energy system. Machine learning is a powerful means of digitalisation that can be used to leverage the huge amount of data in energy systems to efficiently evaluate and coordinate various system components. This short course will provide with essential machine learning methods and tools to tackle the real-world energy system problems in facilitating the transition towards net zero.
