Climate change could affect many aspects of energy generation and distribution, by changing weather patterns and variability. The scale of these impacts must be quantified and understood in order to minimise risk under future scenarios.
A further focus of the group is to carry out analysis of the ‘carbon footprint’ of all aspects of the power system, in order to aid a reduction in the carbon emissions associated with energy use.
Theme leader: Gareth Harrison
