GlobalSIP'15 Symposium on
Signal and Information Processing for Optimizing Future Energy Systems
Orlando, Florida, USA, December 14-16, 2015
My forecast error is x percent, how is the accuracy compared with my peers'?Of course, each question was packaged with details about the jurisdictions and maybe model setups. At first I was trying to provide a customized response every time. Three years ago, I gave a webinar to cover very basic error measures used in load forecasting, which was apparently not enough to cover all the load forecast error/accuracy questions. Last week, after getting another email inquiry about forecasting accuracy, I decided to start this new series of blog posts. It will be the same style as the growing list of load forecasting terminology. The first 8 topics are listed below:
What is big data analytics, deep learning, high-performance computing and petabyte size?
Update (3/1/2015): Due to high demand of my load forecasting courses, we added an offering at the New York City in May.
Update (2/18/2015): I just confirmed two more speakers for ISF2015. Now we have six presentations in two sessions.Recently I received many inquiries about recommended energy forecasting conferences in 2015. First of all, I have never attended a conference that is perfectly designed and organized for energy forecasters, which motivates me to organize the ultimate energy forecasting conference. If you have to wait for this ultimate one, close this page and stay tuned for another two years. Otherwise, keep reading. I will provide a list of 6 venues for you to consider, in the chronological order.
Before doing a pilot, nobody can claim the superior accuracy. Even after the pilot, we cannot guarantee the consistent superiority in the future. Nevertheless, a well-designed pilot can offer customers a comprehensive view of the performance of competing solutions.This time it's about hiring summer interns. The message below is from NPower:
We have a launched a forecasting challenge to help attract students to our graduate programme, however we are also excepting entries from others - who just want to test themselves on some real industry data, they won't be eligible for the cash prize but will be able to see their performance on the leaderboard.
From the T&C's:
"Please note this competition is for University students only (see terms & conditions). However if you would still be interested in attempting the challenge please email graduates@RWEnpower.com. You will not be eligible for the prize but your forecast will be scored and appear in our rankings."
Here is the landing page and also a blog entry on the R site - entries close on Feb 13 with the competition kicking off on Feb 16.
