The Commission has since 2019 worked with the Met Office and the Climate Change Committee to develop two datasets of adverse weather scenarios in order to help understand their impact on future  generation in a highly renewable electricity system.

These datasets will allow for proposed future highly renewable electricity systems to be stress tested to evaluate resilience to challenging weather and climate conditions.

This report presents the background to the development of the latest dataset in this project: short-duration adverse weather scenarios, characterising so-called wind ramping events in the UK.
