Pre-feasibility study: protecting energy infrastructures against climate change

Assessing solutions for protecting energy infrastructures against the negative effects of climate change

Protecting strategic infrastructures from climate change

The project

The project will address the challenges posed by climate change to energy infrastructures and develop strategies to protect them and strengthen their resilience. As climate change intensifies, energy infrastructures face increased risks from extreme weather events, rising sea levels and changing climatic conditions.

Cayambe was selected to carry out the pre-feasibility study, focusing on assessing vulnerabilities, implementing adaptation measures and promoting sustainable practices to ensure the reliability and sustainability of energy systems.

Our experts

The following team was mobilized:

  • A sustainable development, energy, environment and water expert
  • A climate risk expert
  • An economic expert in the specific field of energy
  • An expert in natural disasters and infrastructure
  • A socio-economic and gender expert

The one-year project is led by a project manager and technically supervised by Cayambe’s Director of Energy and Infrastructure.

The actions

The team set up by Cayambe carried out the following actions:

  • Carry out a comprehensive assessment of existing energy infrastructures to identify vulnerabilities and potential impacts of climate change
  • Develop strategies to mitigate the risks associated with climate change, such as extreme weather events, sea-level rise and temperature fluctuations.
  • Propose energy infrastructure resilience actions through measures such as modernization, improved maintenance protocols and integration of renewable energy sources.
  • Promote sustainable practices in the design, construction and operation of energy infrastructures, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions and environmental impact.
