Dear colleagues and readers of this blog,
Last year at ISF2019 in Thessaloniki, Greece, I mentioned the possibilities of running the next Global Energy Forecasting Competition in the SWEET membership meeting. Then the COVID-19 pandemic put everything on hold.
Today, I'm pleased to announce GEFCom2021: Solar and Net Load Forecasting.
GEFCom2021 will feature two tracks, solar irradiance forecasting and net load forecasting. Dr. Dazhi Yang will chair the solar irradiance forecasting track, while I'm taking care of the net load forecasting track.
This competition will inherit the bi-level setup of GEFCom2017. We will use a qualifying match math to bring together contestants from various domains, and to help people get familiar with solar and load forecasting problems. Then a final match will determine the winners.
Additional details of GEFCom2021 will be released in Spring 2021. Please join the email list via this REGISTRATION FORM to get timely updates about GEFCom2021.
Hope you all stay safe and enjoy the holiday season!
