Impact of Climate Change on Overhead Transmission Lines

Extreme weather significantly impacts power systems and is one of the main causes of wide-area disturbances due to damaged T&D infrastructure, as evidenced by the recent increase in weather-related blackouts as well as grid breakdowns. Enhancing grid resilience to such events is increasingly important. This presentation explains that technological improvements in line design, such as upgrading conductors, can mitigate impact of climate extremes while building greater energy efficiency and demand response programs could offset sudden load increases from unusually high/low temperatures.
