Genesis Energy is a power generation company in New Zealand that sells electricity generated by hydroelectric and hydrothermal generators to the domestic energy market. Currently, people control the decisions surrounding power generation and pricing. Genesis asked Winder.AI to help them develop a reinforcement learning-powered solution to automate generation and pricing. Reinforcement Learning Problem New Zealand has the enviable situation of possessing high-altitude lakes refilled with ice melt. Discharging the lake presents an ample kinetic energy store that can be utilised for power generation via a turbine.
