A reliable water supply is fundamental to human health and wellbeing – water availability is already under pressure from factors such as population growth and land-use change. Without adaptation measures, climate change will intensify this pressure, leading to an increase in the demand for water and a reduction in the availability of supplies. Risks include: … Continue reading Water
Decarbonising the electricity system may require use of CCS which needs large, reliable quantities of cooling water – ITRC researchers found that power plants could be at risk from drought and low flows.
Developing risk management measures and strategies for coastal communities against extreme events minimising impacts and increasing the resilience of coastal regions in Europe.
ITRC has developed a new generation of system simulation models and methods to inform analysis, planning and design of national infrastructure in the energy, transport, water, waste and telecoms sectors.
A multi-disciplinary team aims to design robust water supply systems at regional and local scales to improve supply and demand system performance under future climate change.
Identifying the benefits of using UKCP09 probabilistic data in property drainage design and adaption in order to reduce flood risk.
