How climate-induced risks affect power system planning in the U.S. Southeast

Energy supplies are likely to be altered by climate change as shifts in the physical environment reduce the capacity and efficiency of power plants. A new study highlights how long-term energy planning might include a more comprehensive assessment of climate change impacts, and how adaptation and mitigation strategies can converge.
