EUSEW Energy Day: Climate forecasts for renewable energy

webinar series

S2S4E is organising an EUSEW Energy Day on 8 June with a series of three webinars on climate uncertainty visualisation, forecasts for the summer season and the Nordic energy market.

The EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is the biggest event dedicated to renewables and efficient energy use in Europe. The 15th edition of EUSEW will be held as a digital event on 22-26 June 2020, bringing together energy stakeholders and enthusiasts to discuss and debate the way forward for green recovery and growth.

Across Europe, digital sustainable Energy Days, will be organised throughout the months of May and June.

The S2S4E project is organising an Energy Day on Monday 8th of June 2020 as part of EUSEW 2020, with a series of three webinars focusing on “Climate forecasts for renewable energy”. The sessions will discuss the visualisation of climate uncertainty and provide the summer forecast outlook for Europe, highlighting the importance of climate forecasts for the renewable energy sector. An overview of the Nordic energy market for the summer season will also be provided. 

The Energy Day will begin with a presentation discussing the challenges of visualising climate information and uncertainty, and how this was addressed in the development of an operational tool that provides the renewable energy sector with climate forecasts, designed through the S2S4E project.

At the next webinar, the forecast outlook for summer 2020 in Europe will be presented. The outlook will focus on sub-seasonal to seasonal forecasts provided through the S2S4E Decision Support Tool.

The Energy Day will close with a discussion session on the Nordic energy market and the summer outlook for this region. Experts will also discuss how energy market players can benefit from using seasonal forecasts.
