Energy demand, generation and resilience under a changing climate

Date: December 5, 2017

Presented by:

Dr. Alberto Troccoli, Managing Director, World Energy & Meteorology Council

Dr. Marco Braun, Hydroclimatology specialist and physical geographer, Ouranos Consortium

Duration: 46 minutes


Renewable energy and energy demand are both very climate- and weather-dependent. Climate variability – through extreme weather events, rising average temperatures, and hydrological changes – also poses risks to energy systems. In this webinar, experts from the World Energy & Meteorology Council and the Ouranos Consortium present the relationship between energy and climate and the use of climate data for energy applications.
