The content on both pages is a bit sparse at the moment, though, so if you do find any interesting papers or initiatives during your search, please do feel free to contribute that knowledge to the Wiki!
I'm not a forecasting expert, but I dug up a few papers and reviews for this forthcoming paper on Machine Learning for Sustainable Energy Systems:

I've attached it to this post in case you don't have access at the link above!ο»Ώ
ο»Ώ Kamlesh Sawadekar ο»Ώ This Twitter post advertising for a PhD position in data science and hydrology for drought modeling seems potentially relevant:
Tagging in ο»Ώ Evan Sherwin ο»Ώ, who also works on this topic!
Thanks for sharing, Kartik!

Regarding your "backlog" suggestion, would you mind elaborating further? What kinds of information do you think would be useful to include within a backlog?
