The Energy SIG’s aims:

  • To sustain, encourage and progress the engagement of energy sector professionals, policy-makers and academics with weather and climate.
  • To help the Society act as a bridge between weather/climate academics and energy sector professionals by facilitating knowledge exchange, demystifying meteorological terminology and data, and providing networking opportunities.
  • To develop content and activities addressing the meteorological needs of professionals working within energy, including through RMetS’s peer-reviewed journals.
  • To promote and support membership and professional accreditation of the Society within the energy sector.


The Group works closely with the Science Engagement Committee and other Society committees to integrate the needs of the energy sector into other Society workstreams.
