Artificial Neural Network (ANN) has been used in nonlinear systems modeling and simulation. One of the most useful and interesting factors of ANNs is forecasting. This paper discusses the application of ANNs to predict the long range energy consumption for a country. In this study the long-term energy consumption for the years ahead is predicted, exploiting ANN computational speed, ability to handle complex non-linear functions, robustness and great efficiency even in cases where full information for the studied problem is absent.
