Veera Juntunen

I am a doctoral researcher in the Space Climate Research Group. My work is focused on how the Sun-driven climate variations influence the society's energy consumption and production. Energetic particle precipitation from near-Earth space has many influences in our atmosphere and climate especially near the polar regions. Energy consumption and production also partly depend on climate factors and for example the amount of electricity consumed for heating purposes directly depends on outdoor temperature. My research aims to investigate how much the space weather effects can explain the variations in society's energy consumption and production.
