Energy Forecasting @2013

It's been one full year since I moved my posts from my home site to this blog. I think this is the best time to summarize the first year of Energy Forecasting.

Where are the readers?

They are from 105 countries and SARs.

They are from 1419 cities.

The geographical distribution by city is consistent with the earth at night picture taken by NASA. Where the lights are on, there are energy forecasters.

Overall, 6022 unique visitors contributed to 10,504 visits and 20,430 page views in 1,397,032 seconds, according to Google Analytics. (Blogger reported 27,000+ page views.)
