Itron’s forecasting group recently launched its annual energy survey. As we have done in previous years, Itron uses this survey to collect information to assess industry growth expectations and forecast accuracy for electricity and natural gas. This year, we will continue to focus on forecasts of customer and sales growth, weather-normalized growth and forecast accuracy.

All survey participants will receive a summary report, and the preliminary results will be presented at the annual Energy Forecasting Meeting in May. Final results will be shared during our brown bag seminar on Sept. 11. Utility-specific data will not be disclosed.

Surveys like this benefit the entire energy community by supplying valuable knowledge. If you would like to participate, contact Paige Schaefer at Initial responses are requested by Friday, April 6.
