Climate forecasts for renewable energy

Renewable energy supply and demand are vulnerable to climate variability and extreme events. Climate predictions ranging from weeks to months ahead (sub-seasonal to seasonal forecasts) can inform the energy sector on climate variability.

A series of three webinars discussing climate forecasts, visualisation and the benefits for the energy sector is taking place on Monday 8 June, as part of the S2S4E project, which provides climate services for clean energy. 

10-11 am (CEST) - Visual communication of climate uncertainty: probabilistic forecasts for renewable energy: At this webinar, Isadora Jimenez (Barcelona Supercomputing Center, Spain) will discuss the challenges of visualising climate information and uncertainty, and how this was addressed in the development of the S2S4E project Decision Support Tool. A hands-on session of the DST will follow, during which participants will be able to find out more about how climate forecasts are displayed in the tool.

12-1 pm (CEST) - Subseasonal to seasonal forecasts for the summer season: Hannah Bloomfield (University of Reading, UK) will provide a summer forecast outlook for Europe. The webinar "Climate Forecasts for the Upcoming Summer Season" will focus on forecasts provided in the online S2S4E Decision Support Tool for Europe for the summer 2020 period, covering the next four weeks and three months.

1.30-2.30 pm (CEST) - How renewable energy companies can benefit from climate forecasts, and the Nordic power market in summer 2020: At this webinar, researchers from CICERO (Centre for International Climate and Environmental Research, Norway) will discuss the benefits of seasonal forecasts for renewable energy companies, and will focus on the Nordic power market and summer predictions for this region.
