Renewable Energy Committee
The Renewable Energy Committee is a forum for discussion and action between industry, academia, and government. It is intended to promote intelligent integration of weather, climate, and atmospheric science. Our main topics of interest are the siting, performance, and reliability of renewable energy sources.
What We Do
We want to foster communication between industry, agencies and Government, and academia. We do this several ways:
- Organize and promote the Conference on Weather, Climate, and the New Energy Economy held every year at the AMS Annual Meeting.
- Identify and address key issues about how atmospheric science, weather, and climate interact to influence renewable energy.
- Have monthly conference calls between members to discuss current topics, active research, and what each part of the renewable energy community can offer the other.
- Work closely with other AMS Committees, especially the Energy Committee.
How To Get Involved
Being an active member of the Comittee requires a few hours each month. Members often contribute more by organizing conferences or helping investigate key issues. To find out how you could get involved, please contact the Comittee Chair or Co-Chairs. Details are on our membership pages.
