Weather data, such as temperature, humidity, and wind speed, has a significant impact on energy consumption patterns. Incorporating it in load forecasting improves the accuracy of predicting power demand.

Load forecasting facilitates efficient power system operation and maintenance planning, optimizes energy trading, and helps manage peak loads, all of which contribute to significant cost savings.

Load forecasting helps maintain a balance between supply and demand, optimizes grid operations, and plans maintenance schedules, thereby enhancing grid reliability.

LMP forecasting predicts electricity prices at different grid locations, considering factors like demand, transmission constraints, and generation capacity. It’s related to load forecasting as both rely on statistical analysis and share similar input factors.

Load forecasting provides valuable insights into future demand patterns, enabling better trading decisions, optimizing energy purchases, and managing price risks.
