Energy Trading Forecast

Population-weighted forecast of daily mean temperatures for Europe

Do you need information on potential cold surges or heat waves to estimate future energy needs? Our Energy Trading Forecast provides a rapid population-weighted overview of daily mean temperatures for European countries, regions and congested areas. Future meteorological conditions are linked to energy demand by using temperature forecasts and calculations of deviation from the long-term mean climate pattern. Daily mean temperatures are forecast for today and the following two days (Day-Ahead), for the current week (Intra-Week) and for the coming week (Week-Ahead).
