[Excerpt: Key messages] [::] The European energy system increasingly needs to adapt and become more climate resilient in the context of continuing climate change, modern societies' increasing dependence on a reliable energy supply and an increasing share of climate-sensitive renewable energy sources. [::] Climate change and extreme weather events increasingly impact all components of the energy system. They affect the availability of primary energy sources (in particular renewable energy sources), the transformation, transmission, distribution and storage of energy, and energy demand. It is crucial that these impacts are considered in the clean energy transition. [::] Key EU climate and energy policies and strategies promote the mainstreaming of climate change adaptation into energy policies. The development of the Energy Union - which aims to make energy more secure, affordable and sustainable - provides important opportunities for further integrating climate change adaptation in European and national energy planning. [::] Most European countries have addressed the energy sector in national climate change impact, vulnerability and risk assessments, national adaptation strategies and/or action plans. Further action is needed to consider the impacts of climate change in the development of national climate and energy plans and long-term strategies under the Energy Union, and in the update of national adaptation strategies and action plans. Governments can further facilitate adaptation through the regulation of energy markets and other policy interventions, as well as through 'soft' measures that focus on information provision and exchange. [::] Many energy utilities, network providers and other stakeholders in the energy sector are already addressing adaptation needs. All market actors in the energy sector, including business associations, should consider strengthening climate resilience as an integral part of their business.
