Advancing Renewable Energy with Climate Services
Facilitate mid to long-term planning, investment,
WHAT?
and innovation for the wind & solar energy sector.
Advance the availability, accuracy & usefulness
HOW?
of seasonal to decadal wind & solar forecasts.
WHY? To understand & manage risks & opportunities of
future wind & solar resource variability.

ARECS OBJECTIVES
1. Identify the areas that are most vulnerable to seasonal variability.
2. Assess how the global forecast system can identify the areas in obj.1
3. Assess how well the global forecast system can reproduce the "observed"
variable at specific times from global to local scales.

3. Assess how well the global forecast system can reproduce the "observed"
variable at specific times from global to local scales.
4. Analyse the future impact of variable renewable energy generation on
i) existing and new power networks and ii) energy investment.
5. Engage and communicate with end users to demonstrate the value of
seasonal to decadal forecasts in renewable energy decision making.
