12: Energy: Supply, Demand, and Impacts
Energy: Supply, Demand, and Impacts shows the potential effects of climate change on energy production, consumption, and delivery—including the influence of temperature increases on different methods of electricity generation (such as from natural gas turbines, hydropower, or thermoelectric sources), on transportation systems, and on the vulnerability of energy-related infrastructure.
