The comprehensive energy system, which can coordinate multiple types of energy and be characterized by a deep integration of “cyber-physical-social” systems, is emerging. There is therefore an urgent need to conduct in-depth study on data science and big data mining for energy systems. This paper presents an initial discussion on data science and its applications in comprehensive energy systems. The fundamentals of data science, in particular the importance of the statistical learning theory and data quality, are discussed first. The new progresses in big data mining, such as deep learning, transfer learning and cross domain data fusion, are introduced then. Finally, a brief review is given on the applications of data mining techniques in energy systems; some research problems in energy system data mining, which require further attentions in future, are also discussed.
