Our first free brown bag of 2020 is just around the corner on Tuesday, March 31, and is entitled “A Method for Combining Load Forecasts.” This brown bag will present a high-level review of the econometric literature on combining multiple forecasts focusing on the alternative combining frameworks. The session will conclude with alternative recommendations for how the combining frameworks can be extended to meet the operational load forecasting problem.

Participation 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 Pacific-time.

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.
