Many countries must switch from fossil fuels to power for heating. This switch will make the power consumption more sensitive to weather conditions. At the same time, the share of wind and solar power generation is expected to increase, which also makes power production more sensitive to weather conditions. How will these changes impact the weather risk in our power system?
