The impact of climate change on operation of the largest Russian hydropower cascade was addressed. A coupled climate-hydropower simulation was fulfilled assuming a model of the cascade taking into account the real dynamics of the hydro-engineering system. An ensemble approach was applied to CMIP5 climate simulation data using the models’ discrimination based on a validation procedure. It has been found that the projected climate change will make a noticeable impact both on the annual power generation amount and the guaranteed power generation capacity. The found evidence should be taken into account when developing new rules of water resources use for the hydropower plants reservoirs.
