Climate change is threatening different varieties of agriculture species; the wine-grapes are especially sensitive to subtle differences in micro-climate impacts causing changes in the crops (i.e. decrease of the grape quality and quantity, changes in alcohol, acid, sugar, etc.), which directly affects the European wine industry.
The production cycle of the metallurgy industry needs a significant availability of water. In Greece, to meet this need, the companies of the Halcor and Elval groups rely on the Evinos and Mornos river basins which, together, are also the primary resource supplying the waterworks of the capital Athens.
The Italian confectionery company renown all over the world for Nutella and many other food products, addresses climate change with the help of an integrated system that uses different approaches and tools.
Having enough data available, monitoring the climate and its impact on vineyard production, and having the possibility to adapt the business to changing climate conditions are among the main challenges for wine producers in the face of climate change.
CLIM4ENERGY is a C3S activity that aims to demonstrate that there is a valuable and useful link between the production of data from observations and climate models, and their concrete application in the energy sector.
European Climatic Energy Mixes (ECEM) is an activity of the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) that was born to find the answer to the following questions: to what extent will energy supply be able to provide effective responses to energy demand in Europe?
Austrian Alps host a beautiful landscape. However, torrents, mudflows, rock falls, avalanches and floods lead to regular disruptions of railway tracks. Climate research helps to make the railway more resilient.
"The social and economic benefits of addressing climate change are clear, but the economic transition towards a low-carbon world is not so obvious. Innovation is key to delivering this transition".
Climate services: benefits and challenges for adaptation strategies within Europe. Interview with André Jol – European Environment Agency
To identify regions and sectors most at risk from climate change impacts. This is one of the purposes of climate services, which are expected to be most effective when their products are developed in close collaboration with the intended users.
