Part of:Climate and Energy HIWAVES
This lesson for higher ability students extends student knowledge of climate models and how they can be used in policy development. The HIWAVES research team wrote an academic paper investigating the impact of predicted climate on renewable energy production. This lesson looks at how the research team used climate models as part of their work and then focuses on the academic journal article written by the team and supports students to access information from this level of research output.
