The 4th International Conference on Energy & Meteorology (ICEM) is a unique chance for the energy industry and the meteorological sector to connect, exchange knowledge, and work together. At the 4th ICEM, through targeted workshops, panel discussions with international experts, and brainstorming sessions, you will be able to plant the seeds for new business opportunities and interact with an international community of energy specialists, economists, scientists, and policymakers working at the thriving nexus of energy with weather and climate. 

The Conference theme for ICEM 2017 is:
“Challenges in Weather and Climate Services for Energy”.
THE SESSIONS SUGGESTED TOPICS
Weather and Climate Services for Energy
  • Frameworks for the provision of weather and climate services for energy
  • Building blocks, case studies, lessons learned and challenges in weather and climate services for energy
  • Stakeholder uptake and interaction approaches
Energy resource assessment
  • Renewable resource assessment (incl. on- and off-shore wind, solar, hydro, ocean wave, tidal, ocean currents, ocean osmotic, ocean thermal)
  • Bioenergy and Biofuels: meteorological issues
Forecasting for power-system applications
  • Short-range to medium-range weather/power forecasting (incl. probabilistic approaches)
  • Sub-seasonal to decadal climate/power forecasting (including probabilistic approaches)
  • Long-range multi-decadal climate/power forecasting (incl. probabilistic approaches)
Environmental impacts of energy systems
  • Energy systems impacts on weather, climate and surrounding physical environments (e.g. effects on large scale climate, including air quality)
  • Micrometeorology effects on power systems (e.g. on wind turbines, solar panels, power lines)
  • Environmental and social impacts of energy system planning and developments (e.g. turbine noise, PV panel flickering)
Weather and climate risk management
  • Financial weather risk management for energy applications (insurance, trading, etc)
  • Extreme weather events and their impacts on the energy industry (catastrophic risk)
  • Climate change impacts on energy systems, incl. resources, investments, demand and production
Grid integration, storage, and smart grids
  • Meteorological data and tools for grid integration (incl. demand modelling and management, energy efficient building design, energy storage solutions, smart grid technologies)
  • Meteorological and power monitoring to enhance electricity management (e.g. urban networks), including data visualization and IT applications
  • Meteorological data and tools for energy transmission and distribution (e.g. ice accretion on power lines)
Energy policy, programmes, education, and cross-sectoral issues.
  • Major national/international projects/network in energy and meteorology
  • Education/training programmes in energy and meteorology (e.g. planning new masters courses, outreach activities for schools/end user training)
  • The Climate–Energy–Water–Food nexus
  • Meteorological data and tools for energy use in transport (e.g. aviation)
  • Energy and climate policy (e.g. security issues, integrated assessment modelling)
