Wide range deployment of smart grid technologies enables utilities to monitor the power systems and gather data on a much more granular level than ever before. While the utilities can potentially better understand the customers, design the demand response programs, forecast and control the loads, and plan the systems, etc., they are facing analytic issues with making sense and taking advantage of the “big data”. This tutorial offers a comprehensive overview of energy forecasting to utility analysts, planners, operators and their managers. The participants will learn the fundamentals and the state-of-the-art of load, price and wind forecasting.The tutorial will be taught at 2013 IEEE Power and Energy Society General Meeting in Vancouver, Canada, July 21, 2013.
