What's New in Energy Forecasting - Jun 2014

There are four exciting events going on in the energy forecasting community:

1. Global Energy Forecasting Competition 2014
We will launch GEFCom2014 in August. This competition will feature four tracks: electric load forecasting, electricity price forecasting, wind power forecasting and solar power forecasting. All tracks will be under the theme of probabilistic energy forecasting. The competition will last for 15 weeks with incremental data update every week for rolling forecast. The competition forum is on LinkedIn. For more information, please visit

2. Activities at 2014 IEEE PES General Meeting
IEEE Working Group on Energy Forecasting is hosting a one-day tutorial and a panel session at PESGM2014:
  • Energy Forecasting in the Smart Grid Era (tutorial) Sunday, 27 July, 2014 8:00 AM-5:00 PM Chesapeake G
  • Load Forecasting: the State of the Practice (panel session) Monday, 28 July, 2014 2:00 PM-5:00 PM National Harbor 4
3. Special Issue on Probabilistic Energy Forecasting | International Journal of Forecasting
Although the abstract submission deadline has passed (refer to Call For Papers), we welcome submissions of high quality work on this topic. In addition, the winners of GEFCom2014 will be invited to submit their methods to this special issue.

4. International Symposium on Forecasting
International Institute of Forecasters is hosting the 34th International Symposium on Forecasting in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, 6/29-7/2, 2014. There are four sessions on energy forecasting: Probabilistic Energy Forecasting; Electricity Demand I; Electricity Demand II; and Oil Prices. The abstracts of the talks are available in the program book. The full conference proceeding with presentations and papers will be available on the conference website. Stay tuned.
