GE Digital Forecasting software to assist with ADMS and AEMS | Renewables

A tailor-made solution for grid utilities

Several Load Forecasting products in the utility space are produced by generalists, not specialists. GE Forecasting is different. It’s designed by grid experts for grid utilities. It also natively integrates to GE Digital's ADMS and AEMS, so operators can tackle their next challenge faster.

Predictive data that lets you plan with confidence

Renewables and distributed energy resources (DERs) continue to grow in volume and complexity. In the face of intermittency, electrical transmission and distribution grid operators need new ways to manage their utility efficiently and effectively.


GE’s Digital Energy Forecasting makes that possible. This comprehensive load forecasting solution provides accurate load renewables and embedded generation forecasting for true hidden load estimation, avoiding surprises for control room or energy market operators.

Our customers tell it best

"We are excited to deepen our relationship with GE through the implementation of the T-Forecast software solution. With this new technology, we will be able to better predict the energy load flows in the electrical grid, and in turn, we can increase efficiency and reliability for our customers. As renewable energy usage continues to increase, this technology provides a seamless path for future required functionalities and market interactions, including using flexibility for congestion management."

GE Load Forecasting for Grid Operators

Accurately predict the correct amount of ancillary services to be deployed in the grid, and drive towards a more economical operation.

GE Load Forecasting for Distribution Utilities

Speed up outage response and reduce CAIDI and SAIFI to improve customer experience and increased revenue.

Benefits of Load Forecasting for electrical grid and market operators

Avoid real-time crisis

Prevent negative impacts on KPIs such as SAIDI CAIDI and Voltage QoS for Distribution, and anticipate balancing reserve requirements at Transmission.

Predict events

Predict any potential upcoming violation—including thermal, voltage, inertia, balancing—in a systematic manner.

Integrate the full Grid

Forecast from system level down to disaggregated distribution level to anticipate load or generation issues—wherever they occur.

Be proactive

The ability to forecast gives operators more levers to act: the levers requiring anticipation such as demand response and battery storage.

Analyze multiple scenarios

Forecast multiple contained scenarios to represent load growth and variations of electric vehicles, along with other new clean tech/energy devices—all via a single application.

Use open interfaces

Leverage Forecasting open interfaces with GE Digital’s Transmission, Distribution, Markets and Geospatial solutions, as well as non-GE systems.
