Abstract: Recently, large volumes of electricity consumption data are pouring constantly from smart meters and other sensors that count for millions or even milliards of records. Our purpose in this paper is to handle such data and extract valuable information until it becomes stale. Sometimes, additional data such as meteorological, motion-sensitive, door position data, results from surveys, tariffs, etc. come together with the electricity consumption and increase the number of records. In this case, NoSQL solutions are utilized to process and analyze the entire volume of data. In this paper, we propose a data processing framework for electricity data set that comes from a trial smart metering implementation period that took place from 1st January to 31st December 2010 in Ireland. The main purpose is to cluster the consumers based on similarities regarding theirs 30- minute consumption, show their impact on the electricity consumption peak that could be used as an input in establishing real-time tariffs based on peak coefficient.
