Neuware - Meteorological and climate data are indeed essential both in day-to-day energy management and for the definition of production and distribution infrastructures. For instance, the supply of electricity to users can be disturbed by extreme meteorological events such as thunderstorms with unusually strong winds, severe icing, severe cold spells, sea level elevation associated with storm surges, floods . To be protected against such events, it is not sufficient to act after they have taken place. It is necessary to identify their potential impacts precisely and assess the probability of their occurrence. This book shows that this can only be done through an enhanced dialogue between the energy community and the climate and meteorology community. This implies an in-depth dialogue between actors to define precisely what kind of data is needed and how it should be used. Météo-France has been in long-term cooperation with the energy sector, including the fields of electricity production and distribution. Drawing on this experience, it should be noted in this respect the importance of lo- term partnership between actors as exemplified here by the message of EDF. 330 pp. Englisch.

Synopsis: Weather and climate information provide important elements in policy/decision making within the energy sector. Weather forecasts are employed routinely in the energy sector - by energy producers through to suppliers, and by financial analysts through to national regulators - to assist in decision-making. This information is used for diverse purposes such as the pricing of energy or the valuation of financial instruments. Climate information, including from seasonal to inter-annual predictions as well as climate change scenarios, is starting to be included in these decision processes. In addition, weather and climate information is naturally key in the development and use of renewable energy resources such as wind, solar and hydropower. Following an introductory section covering the production of weather and climate information (forecasts, re-analyses, and so on), and a second one dealing with policies for transferring information between the weather and climate sector and the energy industry, the book delves into multi-faceted applications within the energy industry, from the oil/gas sector to the renewable energy through to demand forecasting, thus providing an encompassing state-of-the-art picture of the interactions between weather, climate and energy.
