About this item

Researchers in environmental and Earth sciences and in mechanical and electrical engineering explore links between climate change and energy use. They cover generating a typical meteorological year; social, economic, and environmental issues; solar energy and the weather; hydropower and the weather; and seasonal energy management. Their topics include assessing wind farm reliability using weather-dependent failure rates, whether local wind power resources are well estimated, the impact of droughts and climate change on electrical generation in Ghana, identifying peak period impacts when a typical meteorological year weather file is used in simulating a building's energy use, and implications of diurnal and seasonal variations in renewable energy generation for large-scale energy storage.
