Energy Adaptation Toolkit

The Energy Sector Management Assistance Program administered by the World Bank has produced what it calls a Hands-On Energy Adaptation Toolkit (HEAT), and on can only assume that it's "hands on" because HEAT makes for a more relevant acronym than EAT. In any case, HEAT leads users through the process of assessing the vulnerability of energy systems and developing appropriate adaptation strategies. The tool will look familiar to anyone who's ever seen a risk assessment/management or adaptation planning framework. Apparently, the tool was successfully trialed in Albania and Uzbekistan, so if you have any energy systems or infrastructure that could use some adaptation planning, give it a try.
