U.S. West’s power grid must be prepared for impacts of climate change
Electricity generation and distribution infrastructure in the Western United States must be “climate-proofed” to diminish the risk of future power shortages, according to research by Matthew Bartos and Mikhail Chester in the current issue of the research journal Nature Climate Change. The authors say the changing conditions could significantly constrain the energy generation capacity of power plants – unless steps are taken to upgrade systems and technologies to withstand the impacts of a generally hotter and drier climate. Bartos is a research scientist and Chester is an assistant professor in the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment. Chester also has an appointment in the School of Sustainability in ASU’s Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability. Read on Full Circle

Essential reading: Faculty, staff offer book list
Aspiring engineers are not educated and primed for success solely by knowledge gained through textbooks, lectures and lab projects. Venturing beyond the academic milieu to seek insights into areas both related to and distant from the world of engineering can provide valuable lessons. Find your summer reading on our list

Fulton Schools graduate first online engineering management students
