    Abstract

    Important issues for energy meteorology are to assess environmental conditions for normal operating conditions and extreme events for the ultimate limit state of engineering structures. Autumn and winter storms are a challenge for onshore and offshore energy infrastructure in northern Europe, and sometimes cause damage and disruptions. The incidence of extreme storms has increased over the past 20 years, leading to increased pressure on energy infrastructure. This paper summarizes the events of a storm from October 30 to November 2, 2006 using media reports, government publications, and scientific articles to create an overview of the meteorology and infrastructure impacts.
