On 24-27 June 2019, the World Energy & Meteorology Council (WEMC) is hosting the 6th International Conference on Energy & Meteorology in Lyngby, Denmark.
Weather and climate information is increasingly vital to the future success of energy provision and sustainability, globally. The annual International Conference on Energy & Meteorology (ICEM) brings together top-level businesses and experts in energy, weather and climate systems from around the world to discuss and share their experiences and research. Conference workshops provide a platform for knowledge sharing and broader learning between the energy sector and climate and weather organisations. It is known that the application of climate and weather information presents an opportunity to improve planning, operations and profitability for the energy sector. Building relationships and opening-up discussions on the topic of energy, climate and weather allows knowledge gaps, information and resource needs to be recognised and better understood; fostering and supporting the development of environmental services designed specifically for the energy sector.
More information will be available soon. Meantime, resources and photos from previous ICEMs are available here.
About the WEMC
The World Energy & Meteorology Council (WEMC) is a non-profit organisation devoted to promoting and enhancing the interaction between the energy industry and the weather, climate and broader environmental sciences community. Working together with a large number of stakeholders, WEMC organises and implements recommendations from the International Conferences Energy & Meteorology (ICEMs).
WEMC was established in 2015 and builds on the growing body of knowledge and experience in weather and climate risk management in the energy industry. This knowledge has spurred a rapidly growing research interest and industry applications at the nexus between weather, climate and energy.
WEMC aims to:
- Enhance productivity and policy formulation for the energy industry through a close collaboration between the energy sector and the weather and climate community
- Achieve improved adoption of weather, climate and other environmental information by the energy industry towards more efficient and sustainable risk management practices
- Maximize the exchange of weather, climate and other environmental information for the energy industry between developed and developing countries
