1.4. Development of this report

This report has been developed by a team of authors from the EEA, its European Topic Centres on Climate Change Impacts, Vulnerability and Adaptation (ETC/CCA) and on Climate change mitigation and energy (ETC/CME), and external consultants engaged under a framework contract with the EEA. The key methods used were literature review and stakeholder and expert consultation.

Stakeholder and expert consultation has been a key element in the development of this EEA report. The EEA has convened a stakeholder group for this report, which comprised representatives from international organisations, the European Commission (EC), national governments, regulators, business organisations and businesses from the energy sector, and research projects. These stakeholders were first invited to comment on the annotated outline of the report and to suggest additional literature sources. In September 2018, the EEA organized a stakeholder workshop where the scope and content of this report was further discussed. Finally, the stakeholders were invited to provide comments on the draft report in parallel with the Eionet review.

Adaptation case studies are an important element of this report. These case studies show examples of how energy producers and infrastructure providers throughout Europe have addressed climate-related challenges in their planning and operation. This report includes five in-depth case studies, which are summarized in Section 4.5.2. [For the external review, these case studies are also included in an Annex to this report.] These case studies are based on literature review and interviews with relevant stakeholders. They have also been published on the European Climate Adaptation Platform (Climate-ADAPT)[1], a data and information sharing platform co-managed by the EC and the EEA. Some shorter illustrative case studies, based on literature review only, are included as text boxes in the main text.
