More About This Textbook


"This book is from the proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Weather/Climate Risk Management for the Energy Sector held in Santa Maria di Leuca, Italy in 2008. It presents state-of-the-art papers in the production and use of weather and climate information for many areas within the energy industry; includes papers on the technical aspects of production and use of weather and climate information for the energy industry; and iIncludes papers on high-level policy options for an improved use of weather and climate information for the energy industry" "Weather and climate information is an important element in policy/decision making relevant for the energy sector, both within the context of climate change adaptation and climate change mitigation. For instance, weather forecasts are routinely employed in the energy sectorfrom energy producers to suppliers, and from financial analysts to national regulatorsto assist in decision-making. Given the diversity of the energy sector, this information is used for several purposes such as for pricing the cost of energy or that of financial instruments. Other climate information, such as that from seasonal and decadal forecasts, is also starting to be included. In addition, weather and climate information is naturally a key element in the development and use of renewable energy resources such as wind, solar and hydropower." After an introductory part on the production of weather and climate information (e.g. forecasts, reanalyses) in the context of energy applications, and one on policies for the transfer between weather and climate and energy industry, the book delves into applications for the many facets of the energy industry,from the oil/gas sector to the renewable energy to demand forecasting, thus providing an inclusive state-of-the-art picture of the interaction between weather, climate and energy.
