Preparing the Power Sector to Navigate Climate and Water Risks

Research output: NRELFact Sheet


As the climate changes, so will water availability and other ambient conditions, threatening the reliability of today's power system and tomorrow's clean energy grid. That's why researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) - along with those at Sandia National Laboratories, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the City University of New York, the Electric Power Research Institute, and the National Energy Technology Laboratory - are studying both regional and national climate and hydrologic changes to provide a comprehensive assessment of climate and water impacts and risks to the U.S. power grid.
