Future-Ready Insights: Data-Driven Load Forecasting in the Era of DERs

When a household decides to install rooftop solar or buy an electric car, the effect of that customer’s energy footprint on the local grid is suddenly amplified. These are big appliances.

With energy now flowing both ways, a traditional one-size-fits-all approach to forecasting is increasingly inadequate.

In this two-minute video, Bidgely Cofounder and CTO Vivek Garud shares why a bottom-up approach, using granular data at the home level and then aggregating to form a picture of the grid at the transformer and substation levels, yields a much clearer picture of what's going on.
