    Climate and weather: energy resource availability & system drivers

    With growing dependence on renewable electricity, much of which is weather dependent, it is becoming increasingly important to understand the impacts of weather and climate on power systems. Research at the University of Reading is addressing three key areas;


    • Characterising the complex meteorological drivers of integrated energy systems: weather impacts on resources and demand from local to international scales.
    • Implications of climate change and variability.
    • Advanced weather and climate forecasting for energy applications.
  • We are working with energy-sector stakeholders to explore how climate information and forecast technologies can be used to manage energy-sector risk on timescales from hours and days to years and decades. Much of this research is being carried out by members of the Energy Meteorology Group in the Department of Meteorology.
