The course will be held at the University of East Anglia (UEA).

Deadline for applications is Friday 27^th May 2016.

The course is targeted at energy sector specialists with a broad understanding of meteorology and climate, and to meteorologists and climate scientists who wish to better understand the energy business.

Participants will improve their knowledge on:

  • The state-of-the-art in weather and climate modelling and forecasts at different timescales;
  • The application of weather & climate information for the energy sector;
  • How to address major energy challenges in upcoming years in partnership with energy and climate experts.

The course will offer opportunities for discussions and practical examples. These activities will also be aimed at the drafting of mini-proposals for an energy climate tool/product. In addition, the course will include a guest lecture to provide in-depth exploration of the current frontiers in the energy and climate nexus. World-class experts in these fields will deliver the lectures, which will constitute the core of the course and stimulate peer-to-peer learning among participants.

The course will accommodate no more than 30 students, with roughly equal numbers from developing and developed world institutions and climate and energy experts.
