Copernicus C3S_422 Global and European Services

European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) | Published December 23, 2016  -  Deadline February 14, 2017
cpvs
73000000

ECMWF as the Entrusted Entity for the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) invites tenders for services related to operational service provision.

Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) aims to provide information to support the development of a climate resilient society. Through the Sectoral Information System (SIS), C3S has already 7 Proof of Concept elements (POCs) under development, addressing the needs of sectoral users in water, energy, insurance, agriculture and urban-management sectors in Europe. It is expected that building upon the experience gained from the POCs, a new set of operational services will be developed and delivered to address the sectors that are not served by the existing contracts.

Framework agreements of up to 18 months will be issued in 2 Lots:

— Lot 1: Global services

— Lot 2: European services.

University of Reading
cpvs

No contracts have been awarded for Lot 1 and Lot 3.

The contract for Lot 2 is to deliver user requirements, gap and market analysis for Sectoral Information Systems (SIS) for the following sectors: agriculture and forestry, health, coastal areas, insurance, tourism and infrastructure, as well as multi-sectoral analyses. The contract will provide content for the User Requirement Data Base (URDB) and the User Requirements Analysis Document (URAD) maintained by ECMWF.

The SIS are expected to deliver useful services that stimulate growth in the European economic area. Current SIS developments will demonstrate the value chain leading from Earth observations and model outputs to tailored information in support of sector-specific decision-making. A detailed analysis of user requirements and better understanding of the economic issues in individual sectors is needed to fully realize the potential value of the services.

This contract will provide for each sector an establishment of user requirements, inventory of existing SIS relevant essential climate variables and sectoral impact indicators, a gap analysis and recommendations for SIS developments and sector specific performance evaluation. At least 2 multi-sectoral analyses will be included. User interactions will be conducted in the form of surveys, workshops, individual structured and unstructured interviews, etc.

Copernicus C3S_441 Sectoral Information System Proof of Concept.

ECMWF as the Entrusted Entity for the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) has awarded contracts for a proof-of-concept aiming at demonstrating the value chain from earth observation and model outputs to actionable climate information in different Sectors. This Sectoral Information System (SIS) will translate and combine climate information from the Climate Data Store of the C3S and other sources to support users acting in specific sectors. Customized information products in the form of climate change indicators and ancillary information pertinent to the sectors and various EU sectoral policies will be disseminated via the Climate-ADAPT platform and the C3S data portal as it develops. The contractors will take full advantage of existing capabilities and products in European Member States and Commission Services. This proof-of-concept will require large sectoral user engagement, and demonstration of the value chain from earth observation and model simulations to tailored climate indicators addressing specific sectors, based on case studies. The focus will be over Europe. The contractors will bring together both providers and users to operate each component. The providers will be expected to deliver data products and information services and to engage with (and develop) the corresponding user communities across public and private sectors.

Lot 1:

Water is essential for human life, nature and the economy. It is permanently renewed but it is also finite and cannot be made or replaced with other resources. Freshwater constitutes only about 2 % of the water on the planet and competing demands may lead to an estimated 40 % global water supply shortage by 2030. As climate change warms the atmosphere and alters the hydrological cycle, we will continue to witness changes to the amount, timing, form and intensity of precipitation and the flow of water in watersheds, as well as the quality of aquatic environments. The sectoral information system in water will consider all aspects of water resource and risk management in general, but focus specifically on essential water related climate variables which are under particular pressure and important to sectoral users.

Lot 2:

In the energy sector, on national or international levels, efforts have been put into addressing scientific and technological challenges in implementing efficient ways to produce and manage sources of energy. The resilience and efficiency of energy systems is strongly influenced by the weather and climate environment. Climate variables and ancillary information is key to address energy industry challenges in the most effective and innovative way. Changes in temperature, precipitation, sea level and the frequency and severity of extreme weather events will likely affect how much energy is produced, delivered and consumed. The sectoral information system in energy will consider climate change indicators and ancillary information important to the totality of all of the industries involved in the production and sale of energy, including fuel extraction, manufacturing, refining and distribution involving relevant users.

Lot 3:

Climate change and variability are important components in many sectors such as agriculture and forestry, health, coastal areas, insurance, tourism and infrastructure. Climate information will be relevant to each of these sectors to a different degree and require specific indicators as well as ancillary information. In this lot, the contractors will develop a proof-of-concept SIS scheme addressing the insurance and agriculture sectors, as well as an approach for multi-sectoral information at urban scale.
