secure, reliable
energy forecasts

The N-SIDE Energy Forecasting Platform provides decision support solutions tailored to critical system operator decisions.



Foresight and decision support in an uncertain energy system

In a world where variable, decentralized energy resources and transnational coordination are adding complexity to system operation, the capability to anticipate and adapt to a rapidly changing situation is key.

Forecasting the evolution of parameters such as the system imbalance, congestion, or interconnector flows has become crucial to keep the lights on.

The N-SIDE Energy Forecasting Platform enables the development of predictive and prescriptive forecasting services. Whether you’re starting from a demonstrated use case or building a new one, our forecasting services can be easily customized to your specific needs.

Load Flow Forecasting Services

The adoption of controllable converter based technologies such as HVDC and the appearance of reverse flows on lower voltage networks are bringing challenges to your grid security analysis. Reinforce or complement your power flow simulation for active and reactive power.

Imbalance forecasting Services

As balancing the grid has become more complex, the tools have become more sophisticated. N-SIDE has developed particular expertise in various aspects of system balancing, from forecasting imbalance volumes, dynamically dimensioning reserves, to mFRR activation.

Congestion Forecasting and Management

With probabilistic forecasts on the risk of congestion on critical branch-critical outage pairs, operators can make robust decision in D-1. This solution can also be connected to our Remedial Action Optimization module to take optimal actions 

How it works

Make optimal decisions with
forecasts you can trust.

The N-SIDE Energy Forecasting Platform combines state-of-the-art technology with expert
support, and can be customized to match your specific use case.

Forecasting Input IMG


On top of your data, the N-SIDE Energy Forecasting Platform leverages more than 500 data sources and 50,000 free parameters to generate high-quality forecast. Inputs include fundamentals data (consumption, generation mix, renewable generation, weather data, etc.), direct market information and your data through a Push API .

Forecasting Algorithm IMG


We focus on families of algorithms such as boosted regression trees which we’ve rendered explainable with proprietary methods and a dedicated user interface, to eliminate the black box effect and deliver the maximum level of interpretability

Forecasts IMG


Forecasts are delivered and updated at the optimal moment. They are available on a reliable user-friendly platform, via API, or on-premises, according to your need. You’ll also benefit from a clear visualization of your performance. 

This same platform supports all our other forecasting applications, enabling you to access all your forecasters in one place.


Integration and Support

Our forecast results are available by default through a secure API connection, making it simple to integrate the Energy Forecasting Platform with your existing systems and operational processes.

Meanwhile, our support and maintenance services ensure robust, reliable, and secure operation through our Service Desk:

  • Single point of contact per client, you will always be heard
  • Easy tracking of the request for us but for you as well
  • Share tickets to your colleagues


Precision without understanding is nothing. Our platform comes with a graphical interface and a transparency dashboard that ensures you can understand, at any moment, the impact of each driver and data source.
