The Climate Impact Company U.S. population weight CDD anomaly forecast for each of the next 4 weeks indicates moderately to much higher than normal cooling demand.

Summary: The Climate Impact Company U.S. population weight CDD anomaly forecast for each of the next 4 weeks indicates moderately to much higher than normal cooling demand (Fig. 1). The concern is the required energy amount to fulfill U.S. cooling demand could accelerate during the peak of summer heat later in July. Regionally, the highest demand is in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast U.S. (Fig. 2). ERCOT demand is close to normal. Western demand increases later in July.
