Toronto Hydro-Electric System Limited Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment – Distribution Sector

Toronto Hydro-Electric System Limited Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment – Distribution Sector report cover tags: Electrical Distribution

The current study aims to evaluate the vulnerability of Toronto Hydro’s electrical distribution system within the City of Toronto to a changing climate by employing Engineers Canada’s Public Infrastructure Engineering Vulnerability Assessment Protocol (PIEVC Protocol). This study is a high level screening analysis designed to determine where infrastructure vulnerabilities to climate change may be present, to suggest avenues for adapting infrastructure to climate change, and to identify areas of further study.

Mine Access Roads in Northern Canada - Economic Implications of Climate Change

Mine Access Roads in Northern Canada - Economic Implications of Climate Change report cover tags: Roads and Associated Structures

Note: This project used the PIEVC Protocol for various parts of the work, as well as additional surrounding work. An example of how the PIEVC Protocol can be integrated into large projects of wider scope.

This study evaluates the climate-related vulnerabilities and related costs and benefits of the Tibbitt to Contwoyto Winter Road (TCWR), a mine access road built mainly over frozen lakes in the northeastern region of the Northwest Territories (NWT). The TCWR is the main access road for three active diamond mines, as well as one that will be active in the next year,... click to learn more
