Description

To understand which markets to focus on in the future, Ampion needs to analyze open-source data provided by power grids called Interconnection Queue. Ampion is one of the industry leaders in Community Solar, providing opportunities to participate in shared solar projects through a concept called Community Solar. Through a software platform, Ampion connects residents, businesses, and other types of consumers with clean energy facilities, primarily Solar Farms. Interconnection Queue is a compilation of power generation and transmission projects seeking connection to the power grid.  In this Build Project, you'll wear the hat of a Data Analyst/Business Intelligence Analyst and perform an analysis of Interconnection Queue data to drive Ampion's expansion strategy. Under the supervision of an experienced Project Leader, you'll become familiar with Structural Query Language (SQL), which is used by thousands of companies for communicating with and manipulating databases. You'll also learn how to translate big data into a visual story using Tableau, another tool popular in the industry. All this will happen in an environment that simulates the operations of a real Data Analytics team.
