      Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) have developed a novel machine learning approach to quickly enhance the resolution of wind velocity data by 50 times and solar irradiance data by 25 times—an enhancement that has never been achieved before with climate data.   (Credit: Pixabay) General Motors and EVgo plan to triple the size of the nation’s largest public fast charging network by adding more than 2, new fast chargers over the next five years, a move the companies hope will help accelerate widespread electric vehicle adoption.. The two companies will add fast charging stations to cities and suburbs, unlocking new EV .

    In the U.S., transportation systems have been typically designed with a year lifespan and to withstand local weather and climate (e.g., year storm). However, due to climate change, historic events no longer are a reliable predictor of future impacts.   Climate change is expected to have noticeable effects in the United States: a rise in average temperatures in most regions, changes in precipitation amounts and seasonal patterns in many regions, changes in the intensity and pattern of extreme weather events, and sea level rise. Some of these effects have clear implications for energy production and use.
