Another important thing to keep into account is renewable energy power generation methods. More importantly, by using data analytics, renewable energy power generation forecasting will be more accurate and efficient. Right from temperature, atmospheric pressure, humidity, cloud cover, wind speed, and wind direction, everything can be handled with ease

Does this also factor in looking at potential expectations from the energy markets and how that will impact prices, associated ramp up/down, etc.?

According to the US Energy Information Administration, about half of all electric meters in the US are smart. That means utilities have access to power outage information down to 5-minute intervals or less. Yet even with these, utilities often will associate each customer to their normally assigned circuit. Even though the credit (or debit) of an outage event might be associated to one circuit, that outage could have occurred during a period when the customer was temporarily connected to a different circuit.  For the other half of the electric customers who don’t have smart meters, it become an arduous task of tying to figure out without real time data, when a customer was out of power which circuit that customer was connected to at that time.

Fascinating-- will this sort of feet dragging be less prevalent as the smart meter percentage drifts above 50%?
