Climate risk, adaptation and resilience for electric utilities (Jan Dutton, Prescient Weather)

This workshop will feature ClimBiz’s whitepaper: “Climate Foresight and Resilience for Electric Networks”, which poses interesting ideas about multi-criteria decisions. It will also feature work on the prediction of severe weather events and detecting changing frequencies in long-term climate simulations, as well as a demonstration of the US Dept of Energy’s Energy Exascale Earth System Model (E3SM) initiative. Chair: Jan Dutton (Prescient Weather)

Data Exchanges, Access and Standards (Laurent Dubus, WEMC/EDF)

The purpose of the workshop is discuss activities of WEMC’s Special Interest Group on Data Exchanges, Access and Standards. The main focus will be on the white paper on recommendations to improve data sharing, to be promoted with meteorology and energy organisations. Chair: Laurent Dubus (WEMC Co-Director & EDF Lead Researcher)

How to start a business (Ian Harper, Media Generation Group)

This workshop is a ‘must attend’ for all those budding entrepreneurs seeking to commercialise their projects. A panel of experts with first hand experience of financing small business startups will explain what you need to do to raise money, outline the pros and cons of different types of finance including equity, loans and grants, and field questions from the floor. Chair: Ian Harper (Media Generation Group)

IEA PVPS Task 16: Best practices for quality control procedures and gap filling methods (Jan Remund, Meteotest)

Quality control and gap filling methods are essential for resource assessments. Many methods are used today. This workshop tries to identify best practice methods. Currently no standard method exists for gap filling and also quality control is done with different methods. This workshop is part of IEA PVPS Task 16. The findings of this workshop are used to describe the used methods and to define the best practices. The results will be published in the final report of the Task 16. Chair: Jan Remund (Meteotest)

IEA Task 36: Forecasting for Wind Power (Gregor Giebel, DTU)

The IEA Wind Task 36 on Wind Power Forecasting connects several hundreds of meteorologists, wind power forecasters and end users towards the aim of improving the forecasts, and increasing the their value. This workshop gives an overview of the results of the recently concluded first phase, and an outlook to the new phase of the Task. The results include an agreed procedure to select forecast services, an information portal (, and an overview of use cases for probabilistic forecasts. In the next phase, we will also look into uncertainty propagation, data handling and several benchmarks, both from the meteorological side and the power forecast side. Chair: Gregor Giebel (DTU)

Making the technical accessible: Ideas on how to tailor your talks for public and school audiences (Kit Rackley, WEMC)

More academic and industry organisations are engaging in outreach and education both to inform and as a response to gain public confidence and transparency. This session led by an ex-high school teacher and teacher trainer will give participants some skills and knowledge to turn the technical into the accessible, without losing the message they are trying to convey. Chair: Kit Rackley (WEMC)

Research roadmap for wind conditions and climatic effects (in cooperation with EERA JP WIND) (Jake Badger, DTU)

In this workshop, important milestone for medium and long term goals for wind energy meteorology will be presented and discussed. Ideally the participants will be a mixture of energy sector and meteorologists, who together can present challenges and potential approaches to solve them. The workshop will be supported by content developed by EERA JP Wind in the first part of 2019, in collaboration with IEA. The object is to further develop the research roadmap during the session, as well as disseminate it to the ICEM participants. Chair: Jake Badger (DTU)
