Climate Change: Energy Infrastructure Risks and Adaptation Efforts
Frank Rusco (au)
According to the National Research Council (NRC) and the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP), changes in the earth's climate are under way and expected to grow more severe over time. These impacts present significant risks to the nation's energy infrastructure. Economic losses arising from weather-related events have been large and are increasing. Adaptation -- an adjustment to natural or human systems in response to actual or expected climate change -- is a risk-management strategy to help protect vulnerable sectors and communities that might be affected by climate change. This report examines: (1) what is known about potential impacts of climate change on U.S. energy infrastructure; (2) measures that can reduce climate-related risks and adapt energy infrastructure to climate change; and (3) the role of the federal government in adapting energy infrastructure and adaptation steps selected federal entities have taken. Table and figures. This is a print on demand report.
