Peter Kerkmans, Trading Meteorologist, Alpiq s.r.o., Czechia
Started my career as a meteorologist 34 years ago in the Royal Netherlands Air Force. After 8 years I joined meteogroup where I became deputy head of Operations / Team Lead sr-meteorologists.
10 Years ago I switched to the Energy sector when I joined Vattenfall, first at the Amsterdam Office, lateron in Hamburg on the tradefloor. Since October 2021 I work at Alpiq in Prague at the tradefloor.
My main characteristics as a meteorologist involve the constant search to the added value I might give on top of the models by critical analysis based on my years of experience in interpreting the various models. From Day Ahead up till seasonal forecasting.
