The Energy and Climate Cluster will have two break-out sessions focusing on (a) Dynamic Decision Tools Catalog and Community of Practice and , and (b) Climate Change impacts on energy production and usage. In the first session, we will recap the ESIP white paper that has been prepared on this topic, get a perspective from government agencies (DoE, USGS, other) for next steps, and discuss ESIP activities to launch this project. The second breakout will explore data and models for the impact of changing environmental conditions on energy supply and demand, emphasizing the water usage needs of energy companies and climate change impacts on water availability.
