This report discusses the effect of a changing climate on the energy sector and explores the extent of both direct and indirect impacts on power generation. The paper also includes a discussion of the applicability of NETL's R&D programs in alleviating negative impacts of climate change on energy. As a result, this report serves as a comprehensive identification of the major impact factors that should be considered for future research and analysis.
