This paper describes a stochastic clustering method that is used for making predictions over energy data. The distinguishing feature of the method is discrete, localised optimisations based on similarity mea- surements, followed by a global aggregating layer, which can be compared with construction layers in deep neural networks. The developed model with the method is essentially a look-up table of the key energy bands that each appliance would use. Each band represents a level of consump- tion by the appliance. This table can replace disaggregation from more complicated methods, for instance constructed from probability theory. Experimental results show that the table can accurately disaggregate a single energy source to a set of appliances, because each appliance has quite a unique energy footprint. As part of predicting energy consump- tion, the model could possibly reduce costs by 50% and more than that if the proposed schedules are also included
