Held at the prestigious French Ministry for an Ecological and Solidary Transition in Paris, the Symposium will showcase the two C3S Climate Service demonstrators for the energy sector, the new C3S ECEM and CLIM4ENERGY demonstrators. It will evidence how these tools can benefit research, energy planning decisions and policy.
During the Symposium you will get the opportunity to:
- Connect with experts in the sectors of energy and climate
- Participate in the demonstrator 'hands - on' sessions and explore the climate and energy data it provides access to
- Discover through case studies how access to climate information can improve your organisation's ability to cope with extreme climate scenarios
- Build your own simple tailored data assessment
The symposium is a joint event organised by the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) and its energy proof-of-concept projects, the European Climatic Energy Mixes (ECEM) and the CLIM4ENERGY projects.
Seasonal predictions and long-term projections of climate, along with uncertainty estimates, are now made possible thanks to remarkable progress in climate science. The accurate use of climate information is key to the energy sector as it needs to tackle issues related to climate variability and change for a robust planning of growing renewable energy, more diverse energy markets and management of changing risks.
The Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) funded by the European Commission and operated by the European Centre for Medium-range Weather Forecasts aims at delivering cutting-edge climate and sectoral information for the society facing climate change adaptation and mitigation. It is currently developing several demonstration products for the energy sector.
