Advanced sustainability assessment of energy systems from a life-cycle perspective, which can include:

  • Environmental life cycle assessment (estimation of carbon footprints, energy footprints, etc.).
  • Life cycle costing (including estimation of external costs).
  • Eco-efficiency assessment according to ISO 14045:2012.
  • Social life cycle assessment of products.
  • Life cycle sustainability assessment, and potential use of multi-criteria decision analysis tools.
