Resilience of Interdependent Water and Power Systems: A Literature Review and Conceptual Modeling Framework

A visualization prototype for interdependent WPS is presented to showcase water and power system interdependencies and reveal co-managed resilience strategies that can be used to improve resilience under different types of common threats.

Hydroelectricity Modeling for Low‐Carbon and No‐Carbon Grids: Empirical Operational Parameters for Optimization and Dispatch Models

Hydroelectric power has unusual technical characteristics that could become more valuable as the penetration of variable generation renewables grows, but its use for electricity generation is

tell: a Python package to model future total electricity loads in the United States

The purpose of the Total ELectricity Load ( tell ) model is to generate 21st century profiles of hourly electricity load (demand) across the Conterminous United States (CONUS). tell loads reflect the

The Role of Regional Connections in Planning for Future Power System Operations Under Climate Extremes

Identifying the sensitivity of future power systems to climate extremes must consider the concurrent effects of changing climate and evolving power systems. We investigated the sensitivity of a

The field of MultiSector Dynamics (MSD) explores the dynamics and co‐evolutionary pathways of human and Earth systems with a focus on critical goods, services, and amenities delivered to people

A Typology for Characterizing Human Action in MultiSector Dynamics Models

The role of individual and collective human action is increasingly recognized as a prominent and arguably paramount determinant in shaping the behavior, trajectory, and vulnerability of multisector

Revised monthly energy generation estimates for 1,500 hydroelectric power plants in the United States

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) conducts a regular survey (form EIA-923) to collect annual and monthly net generation for more than ten thousand U.S. power plants. Approximately 90%



A comprehensive review on expansion planning: Models and tools for energy policy analysis
