Accurate prediction of energy consumption is helpful for further value mining and data fusion. In order to achieve this purpose, this paper proposes an energy consumption prediction method based on SARIMAX (seasonal autoregressive integrated moving average with exogenous) and LSTM (Long Short-Term Memory) hybrid model. First, we import energy consumption data and weather environment factors such as temperature, moderateness, wind speed, etc., compare the corresponding relationships through data visualization, and use K-means to construct weather clusters as an exogenous variable. Then we import holiday information, and construct a holiday indicator as the second exogenous variables. Furtherly, we adjust the model according to the seasonal trend and use grid search to select the optimal parameters of the SARIMAX model. Finally, we mix the SARIMAX model with LSTM to optimize the prediction model to make predictions and compare the results. Experimental analysis shows that the SARIMAX-LSTM hybrid model can integrate weather factors, holiday factors, and seasonal factors to make high-precision predictions of energy consumption.
