About this event

OpenSTEF Workshop: Mastering Short Term Energy Forecasting with OpenSTEF!

Step into the future of energy forecasting on March 1st, from 2-4 PM, at the OpenSTEF workshop hosted by Alliander, a Dutch distribution system operator (DSO). This virtual workshop offers a unique opportunity to delve into the world of OpenSTEF. Engage in hands-on experiences that will not only enhance your understanding of OpenSTEF, but also equip you with the skills necessary apply energy forecasting in real-world scenarios!


OpenSTEF is an opensource project to make short-term energy forecasts. OpenSTEF provides automated machine learning pipelines to deliver accurate and explainable forecasts of the load on the grid for the next 48 hours. Infused with expert energy knowledge, the platform incorporates external predictors such as weather data and market prices, ensuring validation and training of machine learning models to provide precise load predictions. 

What You'll Learn:

  • For beginners: Explore OpenSTEF through an easily accessible online notebook, where coding expertise is not a prerequisite! Understand how OpenSTEF streamlines the process of energy forecasting, making it more approachable and understandable.
  • For advanced coders: Experience OpenSTEF first-hand by running OpenSTEF on your device. Dive into the code for an interactive, hands-on learning experience. Master how to leverage OpenSTEF for accurate and efficient energy forecasting.
