Our final brown bag seminar of the year—hosted on Tuesday, Dec. 4—is entitled “Short-term Load Forecasting: A Practitioner’s Handbook.”

Ever wonder how to build a day-ahead load forecasting model? This Brown Bag provides a high-level walk through of the process. This presentation includes:

  • Data analysis and cleaning.
  • Weather stations and concepts selection.
  • Construction of key explanatory variables.
  • Technique selection.
  • Final model specification.

Along the way, we will introduce a handbook that Itron has written describing the practical steps involved in developing day-ahead load forecasting models.
