Accurate Seasonal Forecasts for Boosting Renewable Energy Generation and Improving Current Disaster Risk Management

Project description

Improving the reliability of seasonal forecasting

Reliable seasonal forecasts provide vital information about the upcoming season – whether it will be wetter, drier, warmer or colder than normal. This information is important for many weather-sensitive sectors like renewable energy and just as important for better disaster preparedness. The EU-funded CLIMFOR project is developing an intelligent, probabilistic, forecasting engine based on earth observation and in-situ data that can produce very reliable seasonal (from a few weeks up to a decade) forecasts. Its key objective is to improve how risks and opportunities arising from global change are currently addressed through climate negotiations, sustainable development policy, humanitarian aid and crisis management, as well as enabling a smooth integration of renewable energy sources into the grid.
