What could it mean for the energy markets?

The weather, especially in the summer, plays a large role in the behavior of the energy markets including impacts to demand, price responses and trading decisions. To get a better idea of what we can expect in the Northern Hemisphere this summer, we recently sat down with Dr. Judah Cohen, Director of Seasonal Forecasting at our sister company, AER, to hear his expectations for the next few months.
