The AMPds dataset has been release to help load disaggregation/NILM and eco-feedback researchers test their algorithms, models, systems, and prototypes. AMPds contains electricity, water, and natural gas measurements at one minute intervals — a total of 1,051,200 readings per meter for 2 years of monitoring. Weather data from Environment Canada's YVR weather station has also been added. This hourly weather data covers the same period of time as AMPds and includes a summary of climate normals observed from the years between 1981-2010. Utility billing data is also included for cost analyses.
