I was just reading about how the use of visual analytics is coming into play for preventive asset management of big manufacturing systems or really anything big with structure -- aircraft, ships, trains, buildings, bridges, and so on. Sensors are delivering vast amounts of data, as is the case in weather systems. I wonder if being able to explore the data visually will help researchers in finding patterns and understanding results in energy fields as well. I would think the application would be perfect in the energy industry as you describe it.

My thought is "No, alternative energy data sets are not readily enough available." It's my opinion that the data histories for weather are so colossal that the industry is struggling with its Big Data conundrums. Weather science algorithms are incredibly complex and its even possible that major factors, like sun spot influences, aren't even being considered by many scientists over the past decade or so to the degree that some scientists believe they should. The use of analytics to deliver data analysis with regard to alternative energy, in bite-sized chunks, will be a ongoing exercise of incredible value -- and difficulty.

Joe, interesting stuff here. We've come a long way in 30 years, that's for sure. And while I agree with you that new forecasting considerations are boosting confidence and capabilities, I have to wonder if we've come far enough. I'm especially wondering whether alternative energy data sets are readily enough evailable and being taken advantage of in energy modeling. Your thoughts?
