Fifth Conference on Weather, Climate, and the New Energy Economy
View by day and at-a-glance, includes author index and personal scheduler
Call for Papers
The AMS Energy Committee invites participation from researchers and practitioners who are experienced in and/or are studying the linkages between weather, climate and the energy complex. Participation may range from practitioner presentations (non-academic) to submission of academic papers and published research. Papers and posters are invited on all subjects dealing with the energy complex, including observational and theoretical meteorology, modeling, forecasting, and applied studies. Planned session themes include: (a) Dollars and Cents: Weather for Energy Markets; (b) Weather Fundamentals for Energy Planning with a focus on Data and User Groups; (c) Weather and Climate Applications for Energy Decision Support; (d) Energy Supply/Demand Fundamentals focused on Short Range Forecasting; (e) Energy Supply/Demand Fundamentals focused on Medium/Long Range Forecasting and Climate Assessments; (f) Renewable Energy Applications; (g) Policy Issues for the New Energy Economy and (f) Special Topics in Weather, Climate and the New Energy Economy.
The planned sessions will cover a breadth of topics; however abstracts in the following areas are particularly encouraged:
- High density weather observing networks utilized in wind/solar electric generation.
- Short-range forecast modeling for wind/solar electric generation.
- Medium-range, sub-seasonal and seasonal scale forecast techniques and modeling for energy demand.
- Climate data and modeling applied to long-term renewable energy resource development.
- Risk management financial instruments linking weather to energy planning.
- Software applications linking weather to energy decision support.
- Hurricane forecasting as linked to energy production.
- Energy applications for weather/climate data.
- New technologies for the production of renewable energy.
- Energy user experiences with weather/climate data.
- Educating the next generation of energy meteorologists
Participants may also address the changing dimensions of the traditional energy complex (e.g. electricity, natural gas and oil) as well as transformational technologies in the rapidly growing renewable energy marketplace. The Fifth Conference on Weather, Climate, and the New Energy Economy promises to be an essential experience for those whose work intersects with the energy complex!
