Research: Impacts of climate change on residential demand for electricity in Nova Scotia
The relationship between climate change and energy is often misperceived as being unidirectional. That is, production and consumption of energy sources, including electricity, emit greenhouse gases (GHG) that contributes to global warming. While
correct this view ignores the impacts of rising temperature on energy consumption.
The feedback effects of climate changes are mainly due to changes in heating/cooling requirement and often vary geographically. So far, there has not been any studies investigating such relationship in the province of Nova Scotia. This report seeks to
fill this gap and looks at the impacts of climate changes on the future of households’ demand for electricity in the province.
In doing so, we come up with projections of future electricity demand in the province under different climate changes scenarios. Under our most aggressive projections, significant investment in power generating capacity will be needed to meet a demand of 11Mwh by 2095
