Summary on Grant Application Form
This project will develop a generic process for assessing the impact of the UKCIP02 climate change scenarios on the performance of the electricity supply industry (ESI), the latter being representative of similar complex utilities such as the gas, telecommunications and water supply industries. The generic assessment process will provide the currently missing integrating framework that is essential if the many technical and business risks that climate change may impose on the ESI are to be properly managed. The new assessment process will be developed and evaluated by conducting an analysis of the ESI system, from generation through to customer, with a focus on wind power generation as an example of an important renewable energy source that is particularly susceptible to climate variables. The study will concentrate on two exemplar aspects, namely the impact of electricity consumption patterns and the impact on wind power generation.
