Abstract

Anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases are expected to lead to significant changes in climate over the next century. One of the many potential effects is that river catchment runoff may be altered. This could have implications for the design, operation and viability of hydroelectric power stations. This describes attempts to predict and quantify these impacts. It details a methodology for computer based modelling of hydroelectric resources and proposes analysis of the impacts on the electrical system and on the investment performance of hydro.
