New webinar series about the weather forecasts that affect your powermarket

The connection between weather and the power market fundamentals is getting increasingly complicated, and keeping track of alternative weather models can get tricky.

Together with our partner Energy Quantified, we bring you a webinar series to refresh your knowledge of weather and forecasts.

These sessions are designed for all power professionals, newcomers, and seasoned, who could benefit from a refresher course.

We will start with a series of 4 webinars, each for 15 minutes, enough to give you a deeper understanding of the weather-dependent decisions you make every day. These sessions will work as a stepping stone for the new and exciting webinars we have in the works for 2022.

These short, but informative webinars are FREE and hosted by SMHI weather professionals.
