From the project description: "In fall 2014, Statistics Canada funded its first big data pilot project. The two key objectives of the project were: 1) to use smart meter data as an example of big data, to explore what is and isn't feasible, as well as the tools and skills required, and the potential benefits and pitfalls of utilizing data of that magnitude at Statistics Canada, and 2) to test the feasibility of replacing and/or supplementing Statistics Canada's residential electricity consumption survey data with smart meter data."
