Climate-Informed Energy Sector Adaptation Planning Web Application via Cal-Adapt
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
This project will enhance the Cal-Adapt interactive web application to provide easy access to, along with relevant visualizations of, climate projection data that will be used for California's Fifth Climate Change Assessment and that serve as a basis for the investor-owned utilities' (IOU) vulnerability assessments and planning. Improvements will accommodate the massive increase in data volume, integration of energy-related products from multiple other initiatives, and the need to efficiently integrate new analytics and visualizations that support energy sector stakeholders including IOUs, the research community, and state agencies. The project includes vigorous stakeholder engagement to shape Cal-Adapt tools and visualizations, as well as to build the capacity of end users to use climate data and analytics.
