Itron’s Forecasting group has conducted webinars on a variety of forecasting and load research-based topics for many years and continues to host new webinars every quarter. Past webinars were recorded and are available in a YouTube library.

To watch more recent recordings, you must be registered for the current year’s webinars. Our first brown bag of 2021 is on Tuesday, March 23 and is entitled “Accounting for COVID-19 Impacts in Budget Sales Forecasts When Economics Aren’t Enough”. COVID-19 has presented new challenges in forecasting with increases in residential sales and decreases in commercial sales. This brown bag session will review the impact of the pandemic on electricity usage, present our “COVID-19 modeling tricks” for estimating COVID-19 sales and revenue impacts and consider how to incorporate the future impacts as we transition back to “normal”.

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 PDT.  If you are unable to attend a seminar or missed one, don’t worry! Your registration ensures that a link to the recording will be sent to you automatically.
