Can Exploratory Modeling of Water Scarcity Vulnerabilities and Robustness Be Scenario Neutral?

J. D. Quinn, A. Hadjimichael, P. M. Reed, S. Steinschneider DOI: https://doi.org/10.1029/2020EF001650 Abstract: Planning under deep uncertainty, when probabilistic characterizations of the future are unknown, is a major challenge in water resources management. Many planning frameworks advocate for “scenario-neutral” analyses in which alternative policies are evaluated over plausible future scenarios…

Technology Pathways Could Help Drive the U.S. West Coast Grid’s Exposure to Hydrometeorological Uncertainty

Jacob Wessel, Jordan D. Kern, Nathalie Voisin, Konstantinos Oikonomou, Jannik Haas DOI: https://doi.org/10.1029/2021EF002187 Abstract: Previous studies investigating deep decarbonization of bulk electric power systems and wholesale electricity markets have not sufficiently explored how future grid pathways could affect the grid’s vulnerability to hydrometeorological uncertainty on multiple timescales. Here, we employ…
