Table 3‑2 provides an overview of selected climate change impacts on the energy system for each of the four energy system components in each European region. In those cases where impacts for ‘neighbouring’ regions were similar, these entries were combined. The table shows that there are large differences between regions and between system components. Northern Europe experiences both beneficial and adverse impacts whereas impacts in the southern European regions are all adverse. The energy transformation component faces only adverse impacts whereas all other components are projected to experience beneficial as well as adverse impacts, including in the same region. It should be kept in mind that Table 3‑2 presents only a small selection of climate change impacts on the energy system. Furthermore, the various impacts included are of different magnitude and societal relevance. Therefore, care should be taken when interpreting impacts affecting different regions or system components.
