EESI – How Federal Agencies Partner with the Private Sector to Tackle Climate Challenges
The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) invites you to a briefing on federal policies and programs supporting innovation in weather forecasting, an essential capability to help communities prepare for and adapt to extreme weather.
Weather forecasts rely on a wide array of technologies both on-the-ground and in space: satellites to observe the atmosphere, land, and oceans; powerful computers to run forecasting models; and decision-support tools to interpret and convert forecasts into actionable information. Innovation across these areas can improve the accuracy and actionability of weather forecasts, saving crucial response time.
During this briefing, experts will discuss the policies and programs that guide public-private partnerships, emerging weather forecasting technologies, and new business models enabling the government to more effectively tap into private-sector innovation across the weather forecasting value chain
