Electric Utility Survey Report: Utility Weather Forecasting

Macrosoft’s 2016 Utility Survey Report from 109 Electric Utility Executives

Utilities face a critical challenge when it comes to probing the accuracy of their weather forecasts. Macrosoft’s 2016 utility survey addressed these issues by answering valuable questions involving different weather forecasting practices, perceived satisfaction levels, usage of statistical data, and best practices.

The survey provided many insightful observations including:

1.80% of Utilities use an Outage Prediction model.
2.71% of Utilities don’t have a dedicated, professionally trained Staff Meteorologist.
3.Only 33% of the Utilities do statistical verification of the forecasts they receive.
4.Only 13% of current forecasts hit the satisfactory levels.

Nowadays electric utilities are well past the age when simply “Red Sky at Night… Sailor’s Delight” reflected an accurate forecast. Companies need to be focusing resources on ensuring they receive accurate forecasts that are impactful to operations in making timely decisions.
