Climate change is increasing the variability of the weather, making extreme events stronger and more frequent. At the same time, renewable energy supply and demand are strongly weather-dependent. Through better climate predictions available weeks and months in advance, we can improve the resilience of renewables and transition to a more sustainable future.
Our new video discusses the importance of climate forecasts for the renewable energy sector, and how energy operators and suppliers can benefit from the predictions offered by our Decision Support Tool (DST; https://s2s4e-dst.bsc.es), developed through the EU-funded S2S4E project.
