In different countries additional energy infrastructure/power stations are necessary as with the existing power station, hydropower plants, etc. gaps for energy production are projected, due to different climate impacts e.g. water scarcity and droughts. For thermal power plants, cooling tower and dual systems can be regarded as a form of adaptation to limited cooling water availability. In the case of dual systems the traditional water cooling is supplemented by cooling tower systems which can also work under higher ambient temperatures. Transmission grids are especially effected by extreme storm events. Because of their outstanding importance for population and industries grids have to be adapted to a higher intensity of storms. Especially pylons and lines should be strenghtened regarding the different climate impacts. Furthermore, the location of power lines should be choosen including area's storm predictions and maybe in some cases lines need to be relocated.
