Changing Energy Use for Heating and Cooling Will Vary by Region

table 4.1


This table appears in chapter 4 of the Climate Change Impacts in the United States: The Third National Climate Assessment report.

Hotter and longer summers will increase the amount of electricity necessary to run air conditioning, especially in the Southeast and Southwest. Warmer winters will decrease the amount of natural gas required to heat buildings, especially in the Northeast, Midwest, and Northwest. Table information is adapted from multi-model means from 8 NARCCAP regional climate simulations for the higher emissions scenario (A2) considered in this report and is weighted by population.
