Climate Change in Australia

Climate information, projections, tools and data


Weather will have an increasing impact on our energy system as the climate changes. It is important that the National Electricity Market is resilient to these risks. In response, the Australian Government provided $6.1 million over three years for the Electricity Sector Climate Information (ESCI) project.

The project has delivered improved climate and weather information to support electricity sector resilience to climate change and extreme weather events. As a result of the ESCI project, climate risk - including risk related to future weather - can now be integrated more confidently into sector planning and risk modelling using a standard process.

The ESCI project is a collaboration between CSIRO, the Bureau of Meteorology and the Australian Energy Market Operator. The Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources provided funding for the project.
