UM Forecast IT

The Forecast IT energy planning system project involved the development of a computer application which enables the University to forecast the energy load over the upcoming ten days, in half-hour increments. This allows for the purchase of supplemental power at optimum rates, and the avoidance of the over- or under-ordering of power and related premiums. Forecast IT is web-enabled and utilizes data from the National Weather Service in its complex calculations.

Scope of Work

  • Develop the program to implement the model provided by RLW Analytics, Inc.
  • Develop the interface to collect the load data from an existing metering system.
  • Investigate available web-based weather services.
  • Program an interface with the National Weather Service.
  • Generate monthly reports, available to the energy supplier on the internet.
  • Develop a web-enabled user interface that tabulates and graphs the energy use and forecasts.

Engineering Services

  • Software planning and programming.
  • Software upgrades.
  • Software maintenance.
