Adaptation and Resilience of Coastal Energy Supply

We aim to produce an integrated model of the coast that can predict coastal changes for estuaries, gravel beaches, sandy beaches and dunes, and cliffs made up of both hard and soft rock. The model incorporates climate projections to the 2020s, 2050s, 2080s and our best understanding of long-term coastal change to 2100, 2200 and 2500AD.

Arcoes what we do

Outputs from the model will enable stakeholders and communities to engage with future scenarios and impact on energy and coastal management policy.

This will inform strategic decision-making for enhancing the resilience of coastal energy supply for integrated site management of nuclear power stations, mitigation measures to reduce impact of coastal change on operations, economic models for evaluating and mitigating the impacts on energy supply constancy and long-term design and development of resilient multi-source energy supply.
