Ebook: Brace Yourself for Summer 2024

What extreme heat and an active hurricane season could mean for energy demand

A quick glance at the ocean’s temperatures today reveals an Atlantic that feels more like a warm bathtub. As highlighted by Dr. Mark Shipham, Amperon’s Chief Meteorologist, in the Summer 2024 Weather Webinar, this summer's hurricane season is forecasted to be like no other due to these warm ocean conditions and the absence of vertical wind shear in the atmosphere.

Hurricanes, heat waves, and more extreme storms add stress to a grid that is already under strain due to the retiring of thermal generation plants and the unpredictability of renewables. Get your AC units ready, because this summer is going to be a “scortchah” (as we like to call it up here in Boston), presenting the grid with significant challenges.

Download our ebook that will serve as your guide for the upcoming summer, diving into the potential impacts of extreme heat and a bustling hurricane season on energy demand broken down by each ISO region.
