Tools to help meet LWEC Priority: Adaptation to Climate Change
- A prototype model of the impact of local climate in urban areas from the Adaptation and Resilience in a Changing Climate network. This model, once tested, will allow planners and local councils etc. to evaluate the impacts of temperature on energy use, comfort and health in buildings within their region. (SCORCHIO project )
- Data for future weather years from the Adaptation and Resilience in a Changing Climate network. Climate data at the local scale for the 2030s, 2050s and 2080s is now available for various locations across the UK. These can be used by building designers and engineers to study the energy and thermal performance of buildings under likely future conditions (PROMETHEUS project ).
- From the European Commission: Climate-ADAPT is an online resource for information on impacts, vulnerability and adaptation to climate change in Europe. Aimed at policy makers and practitioners – e.g. engineers, planners and administrators - it will include information sharing on 1) Expected climate change in Europe 2) Current and future vulnerability of regions and sectors 3) National and transnational adaptation strategies 4) Adaptation case studies and potential adaptation options 5) Tools that support adaptation planning.
