Background:

The BEED Committee under the leadership of Bill Mahoney of NCAR (Chair of BEED) in 2005 discussed forming an energy committee which would report directly to the BEED committee. The energy sector was not well represented within AMS and there were not many individuals that actively participated in AMS events/activities even with the rapid growth of the energy sector. The BEED felt this new committee would be a great way to capture individuals working in energy meteorology. The committee then reached out to Jon Davis to be the first chair of the committee who then assembled a group of meteorologists/atmospheric scientists with a wide breath of expertise and backgrounds across energy meteorology.

Purpose:

Promote growth and collaboration of the global weather, energy and climate communities on risk management, demand, transmission and storm management by closely interacting and engaging with the energy industry toward the mutual benefit of all parties.

Goal:

To bridge the gap between the weather, climate and energy communities to better understand their respective focus and needs. In addition, facilitate discussion of current and future meteorological forecast methodologies, trends and technologies, identify solutions and services as well as explore business opportunities.

Activities:

The Energy Committee will develop and participate in the following focal activities:

Committee Structure:

The AMS Energy Committee will be structured as follows:
