7 The objective of the Renewable Energy Community of Practise (RECP) is to support GEOSS outcomes related to the application of Earth Observation data for renewable energies Relevant areas are: Siting of power plants and facilities including environmental and sociological issues Optimized design of power systems and facilities Yield estimation and resource monitoring based on historic information Yield forecast based on near real time weather and forecasting Integration into existing energy supply, e.g. grid & utility system integration Operation and management of power plants incl. automatic failure detection Trading and monitoring of power and environmental credits Environmental monitoring of impacts Life cycle considerations Economic analyses

8 Plan of activities Create working groups on the different renewable energies, identify members and communities, ensure a broad representation Identify existing and anticipated user requirements for the different renewable energies. Identify the present status and gaps in meeting the above requirements, particularly for Earth Observation data, information and systems. Make recommendations how to fulfil requirements and to close gaps. Identify and describe relevant projects including pilot or demonstration projects. Identify synergies between the different renewable energy communities. Document requirements and recommendations Conduct user workshops and user surveys Disseminate GEOSS potential and best practice examples Provide information on standardisation (metadata, protocols, databases,..) Recommendation on incubation projects

12 Snow information is needed for hydropower and solar. Mesoscale modelling is needed for wind, solar, biomass and hydropower. Wave information is needed for ocean and wind energy. Digital elevation models are needed for wind, solar, hydro, biomass. Temperature is needed for solar and biomass Irradiance is needed for solar and biomass Aerosols are needed for solar and biomass …. Interaction between Renewables

13 Work in Progress: Geneva Invitational Energy Expert Meeting: August 28-29, 2006

14 Geneva Energy Expert Meeting Activities Support for Renewable Energy CoP Structure and Workplan Endorse combination of Renewable and Non-Renewable into Energy Community of Practice (ECP) to address all of task number EN-06-xx All members of Expert Meeting agreed to be participants in the ECP Non-Renewable members were identified with promise of assistance to broaden representation Writing group identified to create GEOSS Energy 10-year plan over next four months as a basis for funding Support series of outreach workshops over next few years

15 Next Steps for RECP Questionnaire, all RECP components Develop an on-line registry Series of small workshops (regional?) Specific questions for major planning workshop –What are the key questions –What is the existing technical capacity –What are the existing and required operational and technical support facilities –What do the users need in 5 and 10 years –What are the key metrics and milestones that we can address –What is the degree of precision and accuracy required for operational activities
