‘The aim of the project is to prepare stakeholders for the future. How will the changes in the climate affect the energy system? What adaptation measures may be needed? How can companies be prepared for changed production conditions?’, says Fredrik Aronsson.
Climate scenarios for each energy segment will provide vital information and data that will help both companies and municipalities prepare for the potential impacts a changing climate will have in their region, or on their operations in a given location.
The KLIMPEN project will provide valuable insights into the future of power generation in the Nordics. However, the results and outcomes of this research will be valid and applicable to any industry or location.
The project will help all industries
These exposures are universal, and therefore the learnings from this project will add value to assessing risks caused by climate change, whether this is from frazil ice, wildfires, floods or other phenomena, which can occur anywhere in the world.
‘The results and data from the project will visualise the type of risks that we are facing, and can be used to strengthen the importance of prevention, prepare for future risks, and help minimise losses caused by potential changes in the climate. The final reports will identify the risk areas and present how the experts see the impacts of a changing climate in power production in a particular region in Sweden.
After this, it is up to each energy producer, municipality or other authority to decide what they should focus on, to ensure that they are resilient enough to the coming changes, and that we can step up to meet the challenges ahead’, says Fredrik Aronsson.
