This paper addresses the use of smart-home sensor streams for continuous prediction of energy loads of individual households which participate as an agent in local markets. We introduces a new device level energy consumption dataset recorded over three years wich includes high resolution energy measurements from electrical devices collected within a pilot program. Using data from that pilot, we analyze the applicability of various machine learning mechanisms for continuous load prediction.

We report on the prediction performance and the computational requirements of a broad range of prediction mechanisms. Furthermore we present an architecture and experimental evaluation when this prediction is applied in the stream.
