dScience Lunch Seminar: Benth & Zeyringer

Welcome to our weekly lunch seminar held in the dScience lounge area! The UiO:Energy funded SPATUS project aims to understand the spate-temporal uncertainty of renewables so as to plan weather and climate-resilient future energy systems. Prof. Fred Espen Benth and Marianne Zeyringer will be giving an introduction into the topic.

There is wide-spread consensus on the urgency to achieve the headline goal of the Paris Agreement of keeping global warming to well below 2⁰C and in so doing avoid dangerous climate change. This requires a rapid decarbonisation of the energy system; which can be achieved by electrified systems with high shares of variable renewable energy sources such as wind and solar energy. In such systems, weather and climate have a crucial influence on energy supply and demand, from solar and wind generation to heating and cooling demands. Furthermore, anthropogenic climate change is expected to have complex impacts on future weather-dependent energy systems through changes in weather statistics (e.g. changes in mean properties, year-to-year variability, frequency and intensity of extreme events). 


11:30 – Doors open and lunch is served

12:00 – "Uncertain Energy Systems" by Marianne Zeyringer (Section for Energy Systems) and Fred Espen Benth (Risk and Stochastics)

This event is open for all PhD candidates and postdocs. No registration needed.

About the seminar series

Once a month, dScience will invite you to join us for lunch, soft drinks and professional talks at the Science Library. In addition to these, we will serve lunch to PhD candidates in our lounge in Kristine Bonnevies hus every Thursday. Due to limited space (40 people), this will be first come, first served. See how to find us here (download).

Our lounge can also be booked by PhDs and Postdocs on a regular basis, whether it is for a meeting or just to hang out – we have fresh coffee all day long! Read more about the seminar series here.
