Modern information and communication technologies have brought big data to virtually every segment of the energy and utility industries. While forecasting is an important and necessary step in the data-driven decision-making process, the problem of generating better forecasts in the world of big data is an emerging issue and a challenge to both industry and academia. This special section aims to collect top-quality forecasting articles that document cutting-edge research findings and best practices on a wide range of important business problems in the energy industry. Our emphasis is on big data, such as forecasting with high resolution data, the use of high-dimensional processes, forecasting in real-time, and the use of non-traditional data and variables.
