Venue: The Trust

An electricity market that is designed to be flexible and on demand requires accurate forecasting of load and generation if it is to be reliable. The most reliable forecasts are data driven and adaptive. The Australian Institute of Energy has invited leaders in Australia’s energy forecasting community to share with us their perspective of data driven forecasts and how they will shape our electricity system.
