The Forecasting Reference Group (FRG) is a monthly forum with AEMO and industry’s forecasting specialists. The forum seeks to facilitate constructive discussion on matters relating to gas and electricity forecasting and market modelling. It is an opportunity to share expertise and explore new approaches to addressing the challenges of forecasting in a rapidly changing energy industry.
In February 2016, AEMO convened the first Forecasting Reference group (FRG) with interested industry stakeholders. A range of forecasting related topics were discussed, with a particular focus on AEMO’s two main forecasting publications, the National Electricity Forecasting Report (NEFR) and the National Gas Forecasting Report (NGFR).
In order to ensure collaboration between the supply- and demand-side, AEMO combined the FRG with equivalent Planning stakeholder activities to form the Forecasting and Planning Reference Group (FPRG). AEMO trialed the FPRG for seven months before deciding to separate the Forecasting and Planning Reference Group into two separate groups, with each running a meeting either monthly or on an as-needs basis. The reasoning was to cater to the large volume of participants with an interest in each group, and an effort by AEMO to drive efficiencies in each area.
The FRG is not a decision making body.
