Forecasting

The Brattle Group is an industry leader in the assessment, development, and application of demand forecasting tools and weather normalization methods. We have worked with utilities and government agencies around the world to improve the accuracy and decision-making information content of such models, from the initial data collection phases through the final steps of model calibration and forecasting. Our modeling capabilities are strengthened by our consultants’ extensive expertise in econometrics and economic forecasting.

We have presented our forecasts before state utility commissions and provided training sessions and workshops to state agencies and utility executives. Our demand forecasting models and recommendations have been used in the formulation of numerous integrated resource plans and have been adopted for use in several utilities’ long-term planning processes. We have also assisted utilities in reviewing and improving their suite of load forecasting models.
