Adaptation and Resilience of Coastal Energy Supply

Lead Research Organisation: University of Liverpool
Department Name: Geography and Planning

Abstract

The project aims to identify the challenges facing the future security of the UK nuclear energy sector and coastal energy supply in the NW region as a result of changing patterns of temperature and rainfall, sea-level rise and storms. In particular, we will determine the threats posed to future energy generation and the distribution network by flooding and erosion, changing patterns of coastal sedimentation, water temperature and the distribution of plants and animals in the coastal zone. As well as having important consequences for the operation of coastal power stations, these climate change impacts also affect the neighbouring coastline as well as the coastal waters. As a result, communities need to be made aware of these future threats, and to be brought into discussions that decide the future of energy supply in the UK. To support this, the project will first build a computer model of the coast that can operate at scales of 25-100 km and that can predict coastal changes for estuaries, gravel beaches, sandy beaches and dunes, and cliffs made up of both hard and soft rock. The coupled outputs from this integrated model will be converted into maps of future flooding, erosion, sedimentation, water quality and habitats that are the result of climate change projections to the 2020s, 2050s and 2080s and, over longer periods of time, our best understanding of long-term coastal change to 2100, 2200 and 2500 AD. These maps can then be consulted and overlain using a computer-based geographic information system as a decision-support tool to assist in drawing-up coastal management plans, looking at the different threats that we face and the options to address their overall impact on coastal energy supply. The aim is to identify how the coastal power stations, substations and distribution grid can adapt to future climate change impacts and thus become more resilient, thus securing our energy needs as we move into a low-carbon future.

Planned Impact

The project structure is designed to build capacity for cross-disciplinary working and research among a constituency of academics, researchers (NOC-N, NNL), practitioners drawn from the energy sector (e.g. EDF, National Grid, Electricity North West), environmental engineering (e.g. Royal Haskoning), government agencies and regulators (e.g. NDA, EA), NGOs (e.g. BECC Working Group, RSPB), planners and managers (e.g. local authority shoreline management groups), interest groups (e.g. NW Coastal Forum), the third sector and community networks. This is ensured at an early stage in the project whereby the wider community of project partners and stakeholders are engaged in the specification of project outputs in terms of their key knowledge and data needs, and through regular progress meetings. This co-production of research also extends to partners in the energy and engineering sectors mentoring new researchers in areas of policy implementation and planning consent. The main beneficiaries are the UK public who will benefit from the optimization of electrical energy from low carbon generation and the security and certainty of supply at an economically acceptable value. Similarly, the project methodology will strengthen the role of society in decision making, empowering stakeholders in guiding what happens to their environment. This is likely to streamline the consultation process and, thus limit the costs of public enquiry. The project aims to advance techniques and science that are policy-relevant and helpful to the energy supply and regulatory communities. For example, the development of decision-support products and procedures that can be applied nationally to the nuclear energy sector and regionally to coastal energy strategy provides practical means for achieving the vision of UK energy policy. Being far-sighted in terms of climate change impacts on energy supply will mean that we minimize costly impacts from erosion and flooding on coastal power stations and infrastructure, and address operational challenges arising from changes in sedimentation patterns, water temperature and quality, and coastal ecosystems at an early stage. Other beneficiaries are the transmission and distribution network operators who will be able to run the network with some confidence that loss of coastal substations will not cause a catastrophic loss of the entire grid. Also highly policy relevant is the provision of a framework that can be used to test the impact of alternative policy instruments that affect energy investment, thus assisting practitioners and researchers in the regulatory field as Ofgem develop their regulatory approach to incentivize efficient investment and appropriate network resilience to meet climate challenge. There will also be benefits for economic developments in the UK as global manufacturers seek assurances about the security of supply before committing to locate manufacturing facilities. In the long-term, it is envisaged that the project outputs for assessing adaption and resilience of energy supply are rolled out to other regions and potentially other nations, thus underpinning the delivery of energy policy elsewhere and potentially contributing to sustainable international development, thus preventing further significant addition to global CO2 emissions. From a different sectoral perspective, the model outputs and GIS are attuned to the spatial scales of shoreline management planning, thus assisting the local authorities, the EA and Defra in delivering strategic coastal zone management that is also resilient the impacts of climate change.

Description To date (project ongoing):
a. Nuclear power stations are located on shorelines that are resilient to storm surges.
b. Flooding due to storm surges, wave overtopping of sea defences and high river flows may combine to produce greater areas and depths of flooding. This risk is likely to increase in the future with sea-level rise
c. Flood events with the same probability may result from different combinations of wave height and extreme water level, causing different flood extents and depths.
d. Incremental projections of future sea-level rise identify 'tipping points' at which the extent of flooding increases greatly, requiring a step change in management strategy and resourcing. These thresholds may be explored using an open-source decision-support tool.
e. The Real Options methodology provides a probabilistic assessment of the optimal time for investment in energy distribution assets to build resilience to future sea-level rise.
f. Projections of future flooding identify coastal locations that are less suited for the next generation of energy infrastructure.
g. Implementation of tidal barrages as a means for combining energy generation with enhanced sea defence capability has the potential to both decrease and increase future flooding in adjacent areas.
h. Innovative sea defence by 'Sandscaping' works with natural processes to reduce coastal erosion and simultaneously create habitats and environments.
Exploitation Route The DST is targeted specifically for use by users in the energy and coastal management sectors - and has been designed to support operational and strategic decision-making on the potential impacts of future coastal change. Coastal communities, Universities and Schools are also using the DST for exploring future vulnerability to flooding due to combinations of sea-level rise and storms. We have also developed a demonstration DST for Barbuda and St. Vincent as a pilot project for Island States vulnerable to hurricanes, and are in discussion about doing similar for Mauritius.

Results and Impact I took part in a "Meet the Scientist" event at Liverpool World Museum. My activity was called "Build your own flood defences"

I displayed the ARCoES Decision Support Tool, as well as providing an interactive activity for school kids (Aged 4-15)

The activity involved building sea defences with playdough. Houses were added behind the sea defences on playdough land. Then water was added at the front of the defences to simulate a high tide. The kids were encouraged to make the defences and think about protection. They were then given straws to simulate a storm surge. I provided extra wind by using a hair-drier. A combination of these produced an extreme water level which over-topped the defences. Discussion was then focused on which houses remained dry.

The activity was reset each time, so the kids started off with an empty tray; At least 60 kids took part in this activity. Feedback from parents was encouraging. I was also able to demonstrate the DST to older kids, parents and other interested members of the public.

Results and Impact See results from 2013 (duplicated here). Organised and presented at the successful seminar series: Going Nuclear: the multi-level politics of nuclear energy; consisted of three events in Stirling, Liverpool and Cambridge. All three events were aimed at both an academic and practitioner audience. We also invited and secured the attendance of postgraduates from related masters and PhD courses at Scottish and English universities. Demand for participation and audience was high with all three sessions filling capacity. We used the first seminar in Stirling to provide an international energy comparative context for the seminar series. In Liverpool, we focused primarily on detailed selected and invited discussions on the central theme of nuclear energy in the UK. We developed, thirdly, a seminar on the specific theme of energy subsidies and the nuclear industry in light of recent events surrounding the strike price agreed at Hinkley Point C .

Previously this was restricted to clicking through a menu based system.

Interaction resulted in further stakeholder meetings e.g., with National Grid. At this meeting it became apparent that they were also interested in flooding around electricity pylon towers - due to foundation erosion and subsidence, in addition to flooding around building type infrastructure.
Further meetings were setup as a result of the workshop and this has led to a number of changes regarding the content of the DSS e.g., additional focus on electricity pylon towers
