In case you missed it, we recently announced a new prize you might be interested in: the Net Load Forecasting Prize! Learn about this $600,000 competition and how you can get involved at an informational webinar on Feb. 20.
The American-Made Net Load Forecasting Prize is designed to incentivize innovators to develop probabilistic tools that predict amounts of net load a day in advance of the forecast and promote the adoption of probabilistic forecasts and evaluation tools for those forecasts.
Competing teams are challenged to create a forecasting model that can predict the net load of four specified locations over 28 days. The teams with the most accurate model at the end will receive cash prizes.
This prize is an updated version of last year’s Solar Forecasting Prize. Whether or not you participated in the prize, we invite you to join the Net Load Forecasting Prize for your shot at $200,000. Follow the competition on HeroX to receive updates and register your team by March 27.
Join the upcoming informational webinar to hear first-hand from prize administrators about eligibility, deadlines, and submission requirements, then get your questions answered at a live Q&A session! Register now for the informational webinar on Feb. 20 at 3 p.m. ET. We hope to see you there.
