Towards improving the performance of water-energy systems by integrating large-scale climate services indicators

Abstract : The impacts of climate change on the hydrological cycle are a growing concern among water managers, particularly in the hydroelectric sector. To meet the growing demand for impact assessment and adaptation strategies in the water sector, climate services are flourishing across Europe, particularly in connection with the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S). It is therefore necessary to study the use of climate services available on a regional, or even continental, scale for local decision-making in the hydroelectric sector. The first part of this study presents an overview of the main European climate services that can be useful for hydropower planning and management in the context of future climate scenarios, climate change and adaptation. Secondly, we present an example of the possible use of the information provided by the climate services to inform future changes in monthly flows, which are crucial information to water reservoir management. More particularly, we use a set of GCM/RCM simulations from the SWICCA and the Clim4Energy climate services over the Dordogne river basin to characterise the possible flow evolution in the context of future climate. The conclusions drawn from this work and the perspectives envisaged for the future are mentioned at the end.
