The growing body of knowledge and experience in weather and climate risk management in the energy industry has spurred a rapidly growing research interest at the nexus between weather, climate and energy. Although this increased attention has been stimulated by a renewed and fervent interest in renewable energy sources, weather and climate information is also critical to managing the energy supply from other energy sectors (e.g. offshore oil operations) as well as understanding and estimating energy demand. Until recently, such applied research was discussed in specialised sessions during conferences organized by industry-specific organizations related to wind energy (e.g. American Wind Energy Association), solar energy (e.g. SolarPaces), meteorology (e.g. European Meteorological Society).
As with the International Conference Energy & Meteorology (ICEM) 2011 (www.icem2011.org) and ICEM 2013 (www.icem2013.org), the objective of ICEM 2015 is to provide a dedicated forum where scientists, engineers, economists, policy makers, and other specialists and practitioners involved in research or implementation activities at the intersection between weather, climate and energy can discuss recent research findings and emerging practices ranging from operational activities to long-term investment planning and to policy making.
Efforts are made to frame each ICEM around a special theme. The theme for ICEM 2015 is “Next Generation Meteorological Practices in the Energy Sector.”
