Sigfred Sørensen

Sigfred is one of the instigators of the Montel Group’s development of machine learning solutions for energy markets and is passionate about how AI can help market players optimise the value of their assets.

So far, the Montel AI division has developed AI-based models for power producers, industries, and traders which help them more accurately predict output from individual wind, run-of-river, and solar plants, as well as inflow to reservoirs and power load – consequently reducing imbalance costs.

The Montel AI team has also developed spot price forecasting models covering most European countries, outperforming many “old-school" approaches.

Sigfred has a broad knowledge of multiple programming languages. If you have any challenges you think an AI/machine learning approach may resolve, please get in touch because we are likely already working on it.
