In Resolution 63 (Cg-17) — Energy as an Additional Priority Area of the Global Framework for Climate Services, the World Meteorological Congress decided to pilot interventions in selected countries to support Members to develop sustainable energy pathways. The general purpose of the Study Group on Integrated Energy Services (SG-ENE) is to implement the WMO Strategic Plan (Long-Term Goal 1, Strategic Objective 1.2) under the overall guidance of the Services Commission in creating and sustaining an ongoing programme of service delivery for the Energy sector, especially for the sub-sector on renewable energy, and to implement the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) Energy Exemplar to GFCS (https://gfcs.wmo.int/Energy), which identifies the needs of, and services for, the energy sector. (a) Review feasibility studies in support of the design of weather and climate resilient and environmentally sustainable renewable energy systems;
(b) Review the need for guidelines and technical advisory on weather and climate services for energy in support of WMO Members to deliver operational services for the energy sector in their respective countries;
(c) Compile business models and good practices for strengthening full value chain delivery of weather and climate services for energy;
(d) Compile of good practices and demonstrated socio-economic benefits of weather and climate services delivery for the energy sector;
(e) Promote capacity development support to WMO Members for operational weather and climate services delivery for energy;
(f) Develop partnerships with organizations that represent a broad array of users and institutions including United Nations agencies, research and academia and the private sector, and a community network to provide input and feedback to the study group;
(g) Liaise with relevant WMO TCs, SCs, SGs and Research Board for advocating observation and data needs and requirements for effective and timely delivery of weather and climate services for energy.
