Interested in learning about the latest energy forecasting accuracy trends? Itron has been collecting information on industry growth expectations and forecast accuracy for electricity and natural gas for the last several years. Join us for our first brown bag of the year on Thursday, Feb. 18 at noon where we’ll discuss the trends discovered.

Participation in our brown bag seminars is free, but prior registration is required. Each seminar lasts approximately one hour, allowing 45 minutes for the presentation and 15 minutes for questions. Seminars start at noon PST. If you can’t attend a seminar or missed one, don’t worry! Your registration ensures that a link to the recording will be sent to you automatically approximately one week after the seminar date.

The new 2016 survey is currently open for responses. A link to participate will be provided in your brown bag registration confirmation. All survey participants will receive a summary report and the preliminary results will be presented at the annual Energy Forecasting Meeting in May, and final results during our brown bag seminar on Sept. 13. Utility specific data will NOT be disclosed.
