Fine Tune Your Forecasts
Sharing knowledge and collaborating is key to success. Itron's Energy Forecasting team has decades of experience with, and insights from, end-use data—insights that we make available to members of our Energy Forecasting Group (EFG).
EFG data, models, and support services provide members with a means to develop forecast models that capture the impact of changing end-use ownership and efficiency trends on energy and demand. With a resurgence of Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) filings, longer-term financial forecasts, rate cases, demand-side planning (DSM) programs, and the growth of PV and EV markets, it is more critical than ever to capture end-use technology and structural changes as well as economic conditions in your forecast. Through the EFG, Itron can provide you with the necessary tools.
Making Renewables Work
Weather has always been the key driver in accurate forecasting, based on when people heat and cool their homes or businesses. Now weather is taking on even greater importance in energy forecasting, by now being incorporated when the sun is shining or the wind is blowing, and when it is not.
