Load and Revenue Forecasting
Utilities have traditionally developed load forecasting models to predict capital expenditure requirements necessary to meet long-term load requirements. These models are also used to provide weather-normalized energy sales and revenue forecasts for operational planning, budgeting, and ratemaking.
Since its inception AEG has provided load forecasting services for both gas and electric utilities. Our economists and mathematicians have developed forecasting approaches that address key issues facing specific markets and end-uses. In addition to understanding the influences of the economy and weather, these analyses address impacts of pricing, competition, demand-side management (DSM), and new products on load projections.
