Probabilistic forecasting in combination with stochastic programming is a key tool for handling the growing uncertainties in future energy systems. Derived from a general stochastic programming formulation for the optimal scheduling and bidding in energy markets we examine several common special instances containing uncertain loads, energy prices, and variable renewable energies. We analyze for each setup whether only an expected value forecast, marginal or bivariate predictive distributions…

Comparison of Two Day-Ahead Offering Strategies for a Flexible CHP Plant in Germany

Two different day-ahead bidding strategies for a flexible combined heat and power plant are discussed, which relies on two-stage stochastic optimization and a flat-bidding strategy which uses deterministic forecasts for electricity prices and thermal load.

A likelihood-free implicit generative model based on an ensemble of point forecasting models to generate multivariate electricity price scenarios with a coherent dependency structure as a representation of the joint predictive distribution is used.

Deep Learning-Based Multivariate Probabilistic Forecasting for Short-Term Scheduling in Power Markets

The effectiveness of the proposed methodology is emphasized and compared with several other architectures in terms of both statistical performance and impact on the quality of decisions optimized within a dedicated stochastic optimization tool of an electricity retailer participating in short-term electricity markets.

Analyzing the quality of the expected value solution in stochastic programming

It turns out that a large VSS does not necessarily imply that the deterministic solution is useless for the stochastic setting, even when VSS is large, and very simple methods for studying structural similarities and differences are investigated.

Energy Forecasting: A Review and Outlook

Forecasting has been an essential part of the power and energy industry. Researchers and practitioners have contributed thousands of papers on forecasting electricity demand and prices, and renewable
