The 17th annual Energy Forecasting/EFG Meeting and Training will be hosted in Boston, Massachusetts on April 3-5 with optional one-day training workshops on April 2. Forecasters continue to say that there is no greater value than meeting with your peers—and Itron understands the importance of these interactions. This meeting is an excellent forum to exchange ideas and hear about modeling concepts, data development, efficiency trends and related issues from industry speakers. Your participation is invaluable.

In addition, the ISO/RTO/TSO Forecasting Summit will gather in Denver, Colorado on May 7-9. The summit provides a forum that brings energy forecasters together to address the unique forecasting challenges faced by independent system operators around the world. Over the past 12 years, summit discussions have ranged from sub-hourly forecasting models and techniques that support generation scheduling and dispatching to long-term forecasting supporting capacity planning. Participation and attendance in this event are limited to ISO/RTO/TSO representatives. Register at
