WEMC was instrumental in shaping the European Climatic Energy Mixes (ECEM), a EU Copernicus Climate Service project.
European Climatic Energy Mixes (ECEM) aims to produce, in close collaboration with prospective users, a proof-of-concept climate service – or demonstrator. Its purpose is to enable the energy industry and policy makers to assess how well different energy supply mixes in Europe will meet demand, over different time horizons (from seasonal to long-term decadal planning), focusing on the role climate has on the mixes.
This 27-month EU Copernicus Climate Change Service project started in November 2015 and is led by the University of East Anglia (UEA, UK) in collaboration with Electricité De France (EDF, France), the Met Office (UK), ARMINES (France), the University of Reading (UK) and the Agency for new technologies, energy and sustainable development (ENEA, Italy).
If you are working in the Energy domain, in charge of anticipating the transformation of the sector, through either long-term planning or medium-term operational activities, and Climate affects your decisions, then you may find the output of ECEM useful for your activities. More specifically, the project will be dealing with a variety of Energy-related issues which influence Energy mixes such as the role of temperature on thermal plant efficiency, or the variability of renewable energies, or the climate-related variability in demand. If these issues sound familiar or interesting to you we would like to hear from you so you can help us shape one of the first European Climate Services for the Energy Sector: we would very much welcome your contribution!
