Abstract

Der Klimawandel hat Einfluss auf zahlreiche Lebensbereiche des Menschen; darunter auch auf die Bereitstellung und Organisation von Energie. Bereits heute lassen sich für verschiedene Prozessstufen und Energiesysteme Auswirkungen der Veränderung des Klimas beobachten. Langanhaltende Hitzeperioden erhöhen die Nachfrage nach Elektrizität für Kühlungsgeräte und schränken gleichzeitig die Bereitstellung von Elektrizität ein, da Kühlwasser nicht in ausreichender Menge und Temperatur zur Verfügung steht. Häufigere Unwetter und Überschwemmungen gefährden Anlagen und Transportwege. Diese und weitere Einflüsse werden zukünftig zunehmen und durch neue ergänzt, so dass die Energiewirtschaft vor einer neuen Herausforderung steht. Entlang der Prozesskette der Energiebereitstellung wird gezeigt, welche Stufen gegenüber den Auswirkungen des Klimawandels verwundbar sind. Anhand von Anpassungsoptionen wird zudem dargestellt, wie resiliente Energiesysteme aufgebaut werden können, die gegenüber Klimaänderungen widerstandsfähig sind.
