Climate Change Workshop

Climate Guidance

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) requested the assistance of Climate Scientists to participate in a Climate Change Workshop in order to share their ideas on climate change topics as they relate to the decommissioning and/or long-term stewardship of the West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP) and the Western New York Nuclear Service Center (WNYNSC). The workshop was held on August 2, 2012 from 9AM to 3PM at Ashford Office Complex, Room C-1, 9030 Route 219, West Valley, NY.

The workshop was simultaneously broadcast live with separate toll free phone line on the world wide web for public to listen, view, and participate from their home or office using their computer. With contributions from the Climate Scientists, ECS will prepare a Climate Guidance Document for Phase 1 Studies to address the following Foundation Questions:

• What are the potential impacts of climate change on the Phase 1 Studies Potential Areas of Study (PAS)?

• How may these impacts be evaluated in order to help the agencies reach consensus on Phase 2 decisions?

The guidance will include:

• A summary of issues addressed during the workshop.

• The Climate Scientists’ thoughts, observations, and recommendations for a path forward to help DOE, NYSERDA and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) address the topic of climate change within the scope of Phase 1 Studies.
