In 2006 the Met Office carried out a scoping study on the impacts of climate change
on the UK energy industry. The report was the result of a collaboration between
EON UK, EDF Energy, National Grid and the Met Office Hadley Centre to better
understand the impacts of climate change on the UK energy industry. This Phase 2
collaborative project between all the network operators and most energy supply
businesses sets out to answer the question: What will be the effect of climate change
on energy demand?
Create methodology for prediction of gas and electricity demand using climate
models (dealing with limitations in spatial and temporal resolution). Assess the
importance of temporal resolution to the calculation of energy demand. Investigate
the differences of modelling demand using, climate model output, new climate model
diagnostics, and weather generated output.
