“How’s It Looking Today? Recent and Upcoming Improvements to ERCOT’s Operational Forecasting and Analyses” – Speaker: Dan Woodfin, Senior Director – System Operations, ERCOT

The reliable and efficient operation of the ERCOT System requires accurate forecasts of load, wind and solar output, timely reporting of all resources’ capabilities and plans, and effective tools to assess the sufficiency of resources to meet the load and cover potential risks. ERCOT continues to improve its forecasting in each of these areas, as well as developing more-effective analytical tools. The control room also recently added an additional operator to each shift to support these improvements. Our speaker Dan Woodfin, Senior Director – System Operations at ERCOT, will provide an overview of what ERCOT has done – and is considering in the future — to keep up with changing system needs.
