Climate change to have a negative as well as positive effect on the Estonian infrastructure and energy sector

On July 9 at the Ministry of Environment hosted the steering committee session of the Estonian Climate Adaptation Strategy for Infrastructure and Energy. The results of the project’s second work stage, climate change impact in the four research categories, were introduced. The steering committee also confirmed the impact assessment results.

The conducted research revealed that climate change is going to have a negative as well as positive impact on the Estonian infrastructure and energy sector leading up to the year 2100. The negative and positive effects are likely to balance each other out.

The first interim report analysed the climate change adaptation measures already implemented at the sectors selected

From the first interim project report which was completed in April, it can be concluded that the infrastructure and energy sectors in Estonia, have been quite well established in line with the local climate conditions. The Estonian energy production and infrastructure functions properly in highly variable weather conditions daily and between seasons. Only in the case of extreme weather events or in the co-occurrence of several negative weather conditions, some infrastructure related services have been disrupted for a shorter or longer period of time.

On the road to a climate change adaptation strategy for Estonia

When SEI Senior Researcher Valdur Lahtvee opened the conference Infrastructure and Energy Sector Adaptation to Climate Change in Tallinn on 20 March 2015, his weather report set the keynote: according to the Estonian Weather Service, the previous Wednesday had been the warmest 18 March in Estonia on record.

Invitation to Conference "Infrastructure and Energy Sector Adaptation to Climate Change"

On Friday, March 20th a conference "Infrastructure and energy sector adaptation to climate change" will take place at Hotel Europe (Paadi 5, Tallinn), as part of the current strategy development "Estonian National Climate change adaptation strategy and implementation plan." The conference is especially directed on experts working on topics of climate change adaptation, yet interested journalists are welcome.

Climate change in Norway means that the weather would become more wetter, warmer and wilder.

Climate change in Norway means that the weather would become more wetter, warmer and wilder. As said by senior researcher Tor Håkon Inderberg from Fridtjof Nansen Institute, for food production this would mean a longer growth period, as well as infrastructure would need to cope with the new and more extreme challenges. Dealing with climate change is a long process where results cannot be obtained overnight.
