During last week’s virtual Itron Utility Week, did you miss the forecasting team’s presentation from Frank Monforte entitled Short-term Load Forecasts that Account for COVID-19 Mitigation Policies? Frank discussed learning how to improve day-ahead and intraday forecasts in the face of existing lockdowns and the future re-opening of economies. His presentation ties in with the continued COVID-19 mitigation blog series that you may have been following throughout the last few months.

If you missed this discussion, you can still register to watch the session and any of the other great Itron Utility Week presentations available on demand.
