Overcoming the disconnect between energy system and climate modelling

This Perspective details those disconnects by describing the work of a member of each community and proposes near- and long-term interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary activities among the energy and climate modelling communities to overcome them.

Incorporating climate change effects into the European power system adequacy assessment using a post-processing method

In a nutshell, the paper presents research on methods to incorporate climate change effects in large, industrial power system studies.

The importance of weather and climate to energy systems: A workshop on Next Generation Challenges in Energy-Climate Modelling

The overarching message from the workshop is that there is a mismatch in the methods and dialogue between the two communities concerned with quantifying climate risks. Increased collaboration would enhance the accuracy and usefulness of outputs to end-users

The influence of weather regimes on European renewable energy production and demand

Blocked circulation patterns give on average lower renewable energy production, higher energy demand and thus higher energy shortfall. However, there is large variability within the regimes. The risk of extreme events is regime dependent, but events can occur in each regime

Meteorological conditions leading to extreme low variable renewable energy production and extreme high energy shortfall

Large-scale wintertime high pressure systems cause low wind energy production and high temperature-driven energy demand, combined this leads to extreme high energy shortfall.
