Session Agenda Introduction By Ellsworth LeDrew (5 minutes) Self introductions of persons in the session (10 min) Description of the scenario and objectives (5 min) Presentations by: –Michael J. Brewer (NOAA NCDC): The US Drought Portal: Contributing to Energy Security and Sustainability (on-line demo) –Thierry Ranchin (Mines ParisTech): Answers for the "Mines ParisTech team and Partners Open Discussion (20 min) Develop a work plan for the topic: dates and actions (10 min)
Energy Session Community objectives (from Annex B) linked with Task EN-07-03: –Renewable energy sources (RES) for electricity production – The exploitation of these energies requires accurate knowledge of the resources and of their availability (in space and time) as well as accurate forecasts in the different phases of an energy system life cycle.
Scenario objectives Support the SBA Energy by developing services providing irradiance data among other parameters Simulating the case of the sitting of a solar power plant.
