[M-ZZ53] Availability of earth science data in renewable energy field

convener:Hideaki Ohtake(National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology), Fumichika Uno(Nihon University, College of Humanities and Sciences), Teruhisa Shimada(Graduate School of Science and Technology, Hirosaki University), Daisuke Nohara(Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry)

Renewable energy penetration is increasing dramatically in the world. Renewable energy power generations have become a strong presence in grid operations. However, it is a challenge for renewable energy to be stable power sources due in part to natural variability of renewable energy and its uneven distribution. For effective use of renewable energy, a combinational use of various power resources and energy storage technologies (e.g., pumped-storage power generation, storage battery system, electric vehicles) should be desired. Therefore, we need to understand the amount of renewable resources, causes of variation, and the predictability of power output. Then, observation and forecast information from earth science field should be analyzed and applied to power energy field to achieve easy use of earth science databases.
Recently, observation databases from remote sensing technology and/or forecasts from numerical models have become essential for both renewable energy and electric power system fields. Impacts of both earth science data and optimization are essential to economic evaluation of grid operations.
This proposed session needs your presentation from the whole of renewable energy fields (such as, wind power, solar power, geothermal power, tidal power, wave power and biomass power generations). Our goal of this session is to exchange views with various researchers between renewable energy field and earth science field (e.g., usage-trends of earth science datasets for renewable energy field, earth science datasets availability, integrated studies, renewable energy resources in future climate system, and a request from renewable energy field to earth science field).
The proposed session features contribution of general interest within earth sciences community.
