What's New in Energy Forecasting - Jun 2015

It's time for the mid-year report and summary of the exciting events in the energy forecasting community:

1. Global Energy Forecasting Competition 2014

The competition was launched in August 2014 and ended in December 2014. We are now in the stage of post-competition activities, such as organizing conference presentations and paper publications. Many finalists of the competition will gather at the IEEE PES General Meeting 2015. The papers are expected to be published in the IJF special issue on probabilistic energy forecasting in early 2016. To follow the update of this competition and future events, please join this LinkedIn group.

2. Activities at IEEE PES General Meeting

IEEE Working Group on Energy Forecasting has organized a two-day program, including a one-day tutorial, two half-day sessions and a reception:
  • Energy Forecasting in the Smart Grid Era (full-day tutorial), 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM, Saturday, July 26, 2015, Spruce
  • Global Energy Forecasting Competition 2014: an Overview (panel session), 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM, Wednesday, July 29, 2015, Plaza Court 3
  • Global Energy Forecasting Competition 2014: Finalist Presentations (panel session), 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM, Wednesday, July 29, 2015,  Plaza Court 3
  • Global Energy Forecasting Competition 2014 - Reception, 5:00PM - 7:00PM, Wednesday, July 29, 2015, Windows

3. Special Issue on Probabilistic Energy Forecasting | International Journal of Forecasting

We have processed most non-GEFCom2014 papers. Now we are having the GEFCom2014 papers going through the peer review process. We expect to have the special issue published in early 2016. Stay tuned. For update, please follow THIS POST.

4. International Symposium on Forecasting 

14 energy forecasting related talks were delivered at ISF2015 early this week. I had the opportunity to sit in three sessions (9 talks) and found them quite informative. International Institute of Forecasters will post the proceedings including the presentations HERE.

5. International Symposium on Energy Analytics (ISEA2017)

As I mentioned in THIS POST when recommending energy forecasting conferences in 2015, I haven't found an ultimate venue designed for energy forecasters. On the other hand, we have been planning a symposium on energy analytics in 2017. The syposium will feature an elite lineup of speakers from industry and academia. The symposium will be sponsored by the International Institute of Forecasters. The selected papers will be published by International Journal of Forecasting. More information will be posted on THIS PAGE
