ATSC 313 · Renewable Energy Meteorology

We designed ATSC 313 as an online course to teach you about meteorology as applies to case-studies in hydro, wind, and solar energy.  Each week we explore a new case study, where you are the virtual boss who needs to make important decisions. For example, should wind-turbine blades be repaired given uncertainty in the forecast, will climate change affect commercial viability of a solar power site, should water be released early from a reservoir in anticipation of forecasted extreme precipitation?  Most of the case studies are for British Columbia, Canada, with a few elsewhere in North America.
