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.
