Hi!
I would also like to have access to the training data.

Thank you!

I had the same question a couple of weeks ago and contacted the company. I was told that for many competitions they don’t have the legal rights to distribute the data after the competition is completed. I attempted to contact a couple of the winners to see if they would pass on a copy but none have responded as of yet.

This leads me to think that we should join every competition, download data, and then wait for winners to eventually post their solutions. That makes learning very slow but I have no other ideas.

I’ve found the data on:

You have to make an account, and search through the data sets they provide : Forecasting cold start building energy consumption
