The main objective of a smart energy system is to make control decisions that would make energy systems more efficient and more reliable. To select such decisions, the system must know the consequences of different possible decisions. Energy systems are very complex, they cannot be described by a simple formula, the only way to reasonably accurately find such consequences is to test each decision on a simulated system. The problem is that the parameters describing the system and its environment are usually known with uncertainty, and we need to produce reliable results -- i.e., results that will be true for all possible values of the corresponding parameters. In this chapter, we describe techniques for performing reliable simulations under such uncertainty.
