I have 2 datasets - one with an energy consumption on 15 minutes basis for a week and another dataset with temperature data on hourly basis for a week…

We can build a linear model with energy and temperature data.

But how we can manipulate the hourly and minutes in two different dataset?

Simple solution is to compare both as 24 hours and consider energy and temp data for an hour.

My biggest doubt is about the **autocorrelation assumption**while considering **time variable** to consider in this case?
