Hannah Bloomfield

Postdoctoral Research Assistant, University of Reading

I am currently a research scientist at the University of Reading, working a project which looks at the value of week-ahead to seasonal forecasts to use in the energy sector. In this project I have been creating European country level electricity demand, wind power and solar power models from both observations and forecast data. These are used for sub-seasonal and seasonal forecast skill assessments.

I completed NERC/CASE funded PhD in May 2017 at the University of Reading within the Atmosphere, Ocean and Climate department. My project was titled "The impact of climate variability and climate change on the GB power system". Following this I worked as part of the European Wind Storms Information Service. My other areas of interest include Energy Policy, Meteorology, Oceanography, european wind storms, Catastrophe Modelling and Low Carbon Technologies.
