Energy demand, sources will change with Indiana’s climate

February 19, 2019

Hoosiers will heat homes and businesses less but rely more on air conditioning as Indiana’s climate warms. They’ll also get more of their energy from natural gas and renewable sources as those become more cost-effective throughout the rest of the century. That’s according to the latest Indiana Climate Change Impacts Assessment report, “Climate Change and Indiana’s Energy Sector,” released Tuesday (Feb. 19). The Purdue Climate Change Research Center in Purdue’s Discovery Park coordinates the IN CCIA, which includes researchers from dozens of Indiana universities and stakeholder groups. A video highlighting key findings of the report can be found at https://youtu.be/6bKdcaQuzWc.
