Copernicus: Mapping the future of the energy sector

Copernicus is the European Commission’s earth observation and monitoring programme that collects and processes data from satellites and thousands of sensors around the world, providing reliable and up-to-date atmosphere and climate information free-of-charge. Copernicus has real application in the energy sector, from providing seasonal forecasts and predictive modelling to identifying the best locations for the optimal operation of infrastructure. It can help assess the potential yield of renewables, identify the best sites for wind and solar installations and enable risk assessments to manage the impact of wind, waves and dust.
