The growing body of knowledge and experience in weather and climate risk management in the energy industry has driven a rapidly growing research interest in establishing links between weather, climate, and energy. Weather and climate information is also critical to managing the energy supply from other energy sectors along with better understanding and estimation of energy demand, despite increased attention being stimulated by a renewed and fervent interest in renewable energy sources. The International Conference Energy and Meteorology (ICEM) 2011 has been held in Queensland, Australia, to take advantage of the substantial overlap between these energy activities and their use of weather and climate information. The objective of the event has been to provide a forum where scientists, engineers, economists, policymakers, and other specialists and practitioners involved in research or implementation activities at the intersection between weather, climate, and energy, can discuss relevant research findings and emerging practices.
