The Ninth Conference on Weather, Climate, Water, and the New Energy Economy and the Eighth Conference on the Transition of Research to Operations present a Themed Joint Session on the topic of communication within the energy sector. One of the challenges of our diverse community is ensuring that necessary information is being communicated to the right people in the right ways. At the forefront of all of our communication efforts should be the clear and concise communication of risk, particularly with regards to the stability and reliability of the electric grid. In this session, a diverse array of panelists from the weather, climate, and energy communities will discuss communications challenges they face and methods for improving communication across the energy sector.
