Electricity Generation Capacity at Risk Under Continued Climate Change
Figure 25.8U.S. National Park Service
This figure appears in chapter 25 of the Impacts, Risks, and Adaptation in the United States: The Fourth National Climate Assessment, Volume II report.
Under a higher emissions scenario (SRES A2c54b9473-cdc3-4f22-97a8-4df5253f9682), heat-induced reduction of energy efficiency and reduced water flows would reduce summer energy generation capacity across the Southwest region. These projected reductions would increase risks of electricity shortages. The map shows projected changes for the period 2040–2060 compared to the period 1949–2010.
