    • Wouldn’t it be great if we could predict the future? Life would be so much easier if we knew what was going to happen tomorrow, next week or next year. We could all use a view of the future to make better decisions. For National Grid it would be useful to be able to predict future usage of energy but as that’s not possible we produce scenarios to give us a way of understanding that future and a greater degree of confidence in our decision making.
