The research project Sub-Seasonal to Seasonal Climate Forecasting for Energy (S2S4E) is funded by the EU's research and innovation programme Horizon 2020. S2S4E is working to make long-term forecasts more reliable and useful, and to achieve this goal, the project has developed a new forecasting tool – the S2S4E Decision Support Tool – which will remain free to use until the end of November.
The S2S4E Decision Support Tool has been specifically developed for the energy sector, and it shows the global climate outlook, with prognosis for precipitation, solar radiation, temperature, wind speed and power demand ranging from one week to three months ahead.
The S2S4E project is coordinated by Barcelona Supercomputing Center and the 12 partners in the project come from seven different countries in Europe (Spain, France, Norway, Germany, Italy, United Kingdom and Sweden).
