Weather solutions for the Energy sector


MetraWeather provides weather forecasts and guidance to energy generators and retailers, transmission system operators and energy traders across Western, Central and South Eastern Europe and Australasia.

Picture this. It is late January and a blast of freezing Arctic air sees demand for natural gas across Europe soar to near-record levels for the third day running.

In Australia, extreme high temperatures have electricity generators scrambling to meet the evening peak demand, as bushfires and lightning strikes force system operators to place constraints on transmission lines interstate.

In New Zealand, the energy spot and futures markets anticipate an extended burst of torrential rain across hydro catchments which will influence energy prices for months to come.

Across the globe weather is one of the main drivers in the demand for and trading of energy. Extreme weather events can also pose significant risks and losses for the energy sector.
