Building investor confidence in climate adaptation and innovation – UoR’s Institute for Environmental Analytics to join discussions at ECCA 2019

ECCA 2019, May 27-31, Lisbon

Climate services research is the hot topic trending among financial circles eagerly looking for the tipping point for investment in adaptation methods and products and the Institute for Environmental Analytics – based at the University of Reading – will be joining the discussions at ECCA 2019, the European Climate Adaptation Conference, in Lisbon (May 28-30).

Reliable renewable energy, improved weather forecasting systems, data analytics platforms alerting us to drought and flooding risks, early warning for weather hazards, climate modelling to make strategic decisions for water supplies and agriculture – all have the potential to inform better decision-making. But those decisions need to make a clear business case to earn the confidence of investors and strategic decision-makers.

Using data to inform investment decisions

As specialists in developing proof-of-concept data applications based on world-leading research, the needs of clients are at the core of everything we do at the Institute for Environmental Analytics, including providing robust evidence to support investment decisions. 

RE-SAT is our new powerful renewable energy analytics platform that helps to minimise the risks of investment and support governments in transitioning from fossil fuels to reliable renewable energy, offering a low carbon pathway for sustainable development.

Inspiring governments and energy providers

With funding from the UK Space Agency’s International Partnerships Programme, RE-SAT is inspiring investment from governments, utility providers, other stakeholders and financial organisations in Small Island Developing States (SIDS). Tailored to each country’s weather and landscape and using multiple environmental datasets alongside advanced analytics RE-SAT provides a user-friendly, bespoke desktop platform that enables:

  • Optimisation of the location of renewable energy infrastructure
  • Increasing productivity
  • Forecasting of energy production daily
  • Development in partnership with the host country’s energy teams.

Providing accurate renewable energy projections

RE-SAT’s combination of improving accuracy of renewable energy generation projections, reducing the risk of financial exposure to variability in power production and saving money on redundant infrastructure all build investor confidence in renewable energy projects.

Following a successful pilot in Seychelles, RE-SAT is now being rolled out to a further 6 SIDS in the Pacific Ocean, Indian Ocean and the Caribbean supporting their governments in reaching their fossil fuel targets to meet their Paris Agreement commitments.
