Summer School 2013

July 1st – 5th 2013

Training Center “Le Bataillet”, Montegut, France


In collaboration with the 2nd International Conference on Energy Meteorology ICEM (, the COST Action ES1002 “Weather Intelligence for Renewable Energies WIRE” organized a Summer School in Montegut, about 100 km away from Toulouse in the French Pyreneans.

The Summer School was entitled “From Renewable Energy Production to End Users”. It aimed at providing basic and advanced knowledge from the forecast of Renewable Energy production for wind and solar energy to the use of meteorological forecast for the efficient management of energy transport and distribution towards end users, including such effects as Dynamic Line Rating and icing on overhead power lines. Insights in measurement techniques dedicated to wind and solar energy production were also presented.

The program covered the following topics:

  • Renewable Energy forecasting and climate
  • Basic meteorology
  • Numerical Weather Prediction and high resolution mesoscale models
  • Forecasting of wind and solar energy production, including uncertainty in power forecasting
  • Forecasting applications
  • Measurements dedicated to Renewable Energies

The tutorials were presented by the best experts in these fields.
