Climate Change Impacts on Electricity Demand and Supply in the United States: A Multi-Model Comparison

Citation:

Climate Change Impacts on Electricity Demand and Supply in the United States: A Multi-Model Comparison. CLIMATIC CHANGE. Springer Netherlands, , Netherlands.

Impact/Purpose:

Paper part of CIRA project in special journal issue

Description:

This paper compares the climate change impacts on U.S. electricity demand and supply from three models: the Integrated Planning Model (IPM), the Regional Energy Deployment System (ReEDS) model, and GCAM. Rising temperatures cause an appreciable net increase in electricity demand. The increase in demand is offset under climate policies, which entail greater investment in non-emitting power generation technologies.
