Battery Storage Impact Study



Project Type:

Environmental & Regulatory


United States

Key Takeaways

Temperatures Impact Equipment

Higher temperatures reduce the lifespan and efficiency of equipment.

Interruptions from Weather Events

Interruptions are increasing as the growing number of extreme events necessitates backup energy systems.

Peak Temperatures Raise Concerns

Interruptions will increase as demand for energy exceeds generation capacity.

About the Project

Impact of Heat on Renewable Energy Investments

Environmental changes are having a significant impact on the renewable energy sector. Extreme heat is driving higher demand for power backup and increasing the likelihood of equipment failure. Simultaneously, shifts in energy demand are creating greater uncertainty for providers, which is affecting the financial outlook of these investments.

Resilient Analytics served as the climate risk consultant for this project, responsible for analyzing potential temperature changes across the southwest. The team also translated these temperature increases into potential energy backup impacts for the investment company. These analyses were required for multiple timeframes.

Resilient Analytics analyzed a suite of scenarios to determine how temperature would change throughout the southwest. The team worked with the client to develop specific equipment and energy risk thresholds to set levels of impact for each location. The team created typical demand scenarios for future years to help the company anticipate energy needs and potential outages.
