Energy Forecasting and Analytics

Energy systems are amongst the most complicated machines created by humans and underpin modern societies. The reliable and economic supply of energy requires forecast on a range of timescales from seconds to seasons ahead to inform planning and day-to-day operations. Analytics in general help individuals and companies plan their energy use and generation, and management of energy networks. As the energy sector decarbonises, it is increasingly weather-dependent while at the same time digital technologies are providing opportunities to operate energy systems more flexibly. University of Glasgow research is developing forecasting and decision-support tools that support the energy sector in the UK and globally.
