New to energy forecasting? Itron can provide you with an introduction to the use of regression for forecasting applications, which is designed for analysts and managers who are new to the forecasting area and do not have a background in statistical analysis.

Using hands-on examples, workshop participants will build sales/load forecasting models using linear regression and exponential smoothing models. At the end of this three-day session, attendees will have a strong understanding of basic regression theory, how to apply it to energy forecasting applications, and how to use the model statistics to develop accurate forecasting models. No background in statistics is required, although it will be useful, as mathematical concepts will be taught.

Itron is always at the forefront of the energy forecasting field. We help our customers understand the complexities of forecasting. Take advantage of Itron’s expertise and experience to help you improve your forecasts. For over 20 years, Itron has trained hundreds of energy forecasters. See why our blend of lecture on real-world examples, demonstration of modeling techniques and hands-on exercises executed by attendees is a verified recipe for successful learning.
