Professor Alberto Troccoli is based at the University of East Anglia’s School of Environmental Sciences and is also the co-Founder and Managing Director of the World Energy & Meteorology Council, an organisation devoted to promoting and enhancing the interaction between the energy industry and the weather. He has about 25 years of experience in several aspects of meteorology and climate and, in the last decade, their applications, particularly to the energy sector. He has worked at several leading institutions such as NASA, ECMWF (UK), the University of Reading (UK) and CSIRO (Australia). He has led a number of projects and capacity building activities, particularly in the area of meteorology and energy. He is currently the leader of the EU H2020 project, The Added Value of Seasonal Climate Forecasting for Integrated Risk Management (SECLI-FIRM) project, and of the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) Energy operational and the Educational demo projects. Alberto has published extensively and is also the chief editor and an author of four books: Seasonal Climate: Forecasting and Managing Risk (2008), Management of Weather and Climate Risk in the Energy Industry (2009), Weather Matters for Energy (2014), Weather & Climate Services for the Energy Industry (2018) – the latter one for instance has been downloaded many thousand times. Further, he is the main author of the UN-led Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) Energy Sector implementation plan. He attended the May 2015 WMO Congress as an invited expert on energy sector matters and he is regularly invited internationally to give talks on energy and climate. He is the convener of the International Conference Energy & Meteorology (ICEM) series. Alberto holds a PhD in physical oceanography from the University of Edinburgh (UK).
