Summary

This title includes a number of Open Access chapters.

Meteorological data are essential for both day-to-day energy management and for planning for the world’s future energy security. The editor of this compendium, a mechanical engineer with international experience, has collected articles that will encourage more productive dialogue between the energy and meteorology communities. Included are chapters on how to generate a typical meteorological year, followed by articles that discuss the impact of meteorology on wind energy production, solar energy production, and hydropower operations. The book concludes with chapters on seasonal energy management.
