The article reports on tools provided by the British Meteorogical Office and 11 energy companies to help such companies prepare for climate change. Rob Harris, the Met Office's lead scientist on the project, said it was providing a link between climate models, which offer information on a 50 to 60-year timetable and energy companies' need for information about the next 10 years. The project found that most network design standards did not need to be changed.
