SEASON 1 EPISODE 12

This week, Sallyann Blackett, Head of Volume Forecasting at E.ON, joins us on the Hypercube podcast for a deep dive into the challenges and developments in energy forecasting.

Sallyann lifts the lid on how the forecasting teams operate within one of the energy world’s biggest players. She discusses her team’s work predicting gas and electricity demands both long- and short-term. She talks through the complex modelling and inputs used, as well as challenges around data analysis and accounting for external factors from the weather to the cost of living. She explains why forecasting is about more than just data, the value of a good team, and where Al fits into the energy forecasting operations of the future.

In this episode, we covered:

  • Managing long- and short-term forecasting challenges
  • Using gut instinct alongside data models
  • The value of a strong in-house team to avoid blocks and bottlenecks
  • Playing catch up with solar energy modelling
  • A cautious approach to Al

The weekly Hypercube podcast sits down with leaders in the energy and utilities sectors to explore how data analytics can help businesses make smarter decisions and accelerate business growth.
