Estimating Climate Change Impacts on Water and Electric Power Infrastructure in the Southeast U.S.

A diagram depicting the different components of the model.

In this project we focus on developing a water-energy system modeling approach to assess the interdependence of critical infrastructures of water and electric power supply, as applied to the Southeast U.S., as it faces the stresses posed by predicted changes in climate. Our modeling framework will include estimating how the projected changes in air temperature, air humidity, water temperatures, and stream flows will impact electricity demand and supply.
