Hands-on Energy Adaptation Toolkit (HEAT) is designed to support assessments of climate vulnerabilities and adaptation options in the energy sector of a country. The process should be guided by an Assignment Management Team including experts from several fields.
HEAT aims to help raise awareness among key stakeholders and to initiate a dialogue on energy sector adaptation. HEAT uses a bottom-up, stakeholder-based, qualitative/semi-quantitative risk-assessment approach to discuss and identify risks, adaptation measures, and their costs and benefits. HEAT’s climate vulnerability assessment framework puts stakeholders at the heart of the decision-making process and involves:
HEAT identifies key direct risks to energy supply and demand, and options for where to establish adaptation focused subsequent in-depth analyses. It also identifies additional research needed to better understand the implications of extreme climatic events for the energy sector as well as potential indirect impacts, such as possible adaptation actions in the agriculture sector that may affect energy supply. Geographic focus is currently Albania and Uzbekistan.
Aid adaptation decision processes; evaluate the tool's effectiveness and efficiency, including which policy cycle stage it can be used in.
