Data was aggregated at every hour.  Data was treated to impute missing values, outliers etc  Feature engineering was done and additional variables were brought in  Used sophisticated and advanced predictive models such as Random Forest, GLM, SVM, Neural network & Decision Tree and ensembled the results from the above models to get more accurate prediction
