Many interactive workshops encouraged an exchange of information between experts from different branches like the energy sector and the field of meteorology.Innovation and trends played a major role in this context. The provision of weather data will become more important for all kinds of business processes. Therefore Christian Schluchter, CTO of Meteomatics, presented the Meteodrones and the resultant improvements of wind- and solar power forecasts in Bari.
