Recent years have seen a growing appreciation of the risks posed by climate variability, change and uncertainty in power system operations and planning.  There remain, however, many fundamental scientific and technical questions to be addressed in order to fully understand climate risk in power systems.

This event, the 2nd online workshop in the “NextGenEC” series, will bring together an international and interdisciplinary group of researchers working at the interface between climate and energy science.  The aim is to stimulate active and ongoing discussions around the use of climate information in energy system analysis. Details of last year’s workshop (NextGenEC20, June 2020) which attracted nearly 80 participants from around the world can be found here, and in the meeting summary published here (open access).

This year’s topic – “Climate and Energy Systems: Foresight days to decades ahead” – will focus discussion and presentations around 5 themes:

  • Making the most of limited meteorological predictability for energy
  • Climate uncertainty and power system planning
  • Definition and assessment of weather stress events for energy
  • Added value of subseasonal-to-seasonal (S2S) forecasting for energy
  • Renewable energy and research into the developing markets

Further details can be found on the workshop webpage, here.  Participants are invited to present their own research and engage in working group discussions addressing these themes.

To enable active discussions between all participants, numbers attending the workshop may be limited.  If you are interested in participating, please register your interest using the following link before Friday 3rd September:
