The Technology Analytics Intern will investigate differnt existing solar harvest and power delivery technologist, nad produce a model which predicts accurate solar power harvesting based on geographic location, weather data, physical setup and components capabilities. The role involved technical analysis, information gathering, data management and predictive analytics skills to provide pricing and market foundation data drive decisions.
The role involves identifying and considering current sources of data regarding various weather conditions, as well as solar irradiation and constructing a dynamic mathematical model of expected solar harvesting in a specific location. The candidate will be provided with some existing examples and calculations and will be asked to expand the model beyond the existing data sources. The model created will be a vital tool in the company's analysis of its desired markets.
Duties and responsibilities
- Research and identify relevant data sources from university databases and weather stations that include cloud cover and solar irradiation data
- Create tools to read, parse and normalize numeric and symbolic data
- Create a model with production level code using python, R, Matlab or equivalent where a geographic location is entered and solar production model is received as an output.
- Properly comment and provide documentation on code written
Knowledge and skills
- Proficient in one or more of the following technologies: python, R, Matlab Octave, c#, SQL
- Proficient in Excel and Microsoft Office
- Previous foundational knowledge in machine learning techniques and tools such as TensorFlow.
- Ability to read a spec and derive pre-determined parameters
- inquisitive and resourceful
- self starter who shines working at home
- MBA MBAN
- Bachelor of Business Administration
