An Initial Analysis
of the Impact of Past and Future Climate Change on the
Efficiency and Reliability of Solar, Wind and Hydro Energy
change will impact our electric power system, affecting
both the load and generation and thereby the grid reliability.
Here we investigate one part of these impacts, the effect of past
and future climate change on the supply of renewable energy.
Analyzing model output data through 2100 and past data, climate
change is found to impact both the total supply available and its
variability. This impact is however found to vary significantly
with location. Here we focus on and compare a few disparate
locations, Palma de Mallorca in the Balearic Islands, Cordova
Alaska, McAllen TX and Oroville CA. Using developed metrics, this
analysis applies a developed process to evaluate the changing
needs for energy storage as well as the ability to evaluate the
impact on grid reliability from both penetration of increasing
renewable resources and changes in the variability of the resource
on both transmission grids and microgrids in order to guide
possible mitigation paths.
