Climate Impacts and U.S. Energy Infrastructure


A new report from the U.S. Government Accountability Office reports that U.S. energy infrastructure is increasingly vulnerable to a range of climate change impacts—particularly infrastructure in areas prone to severe weather and water shortages. Climate changes are projected to affect infrastructure throughout all major stages of the energy supply chain, thereby increasing the risk of disruptions. This report complements a range of studies emerging from the federal government (particularly the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Global Change Research Program) in the past couple of years that effectively say the same thing.
