LONG TERM EUROPEAN INVESTMENT IN ENERGY R AND D
After pointing out the necessity of the inclusion of uncertainty, a short discussion of the merits of some models for the evaluation of energy technologies follows. Special features of the research and development of technologies are described. The evaluation of experts' opinions, including possible market penetration strategies is presented. One of the main goals of this study, which was carried out on behalf of the European Commission, was the analysis of the technological, economic (political) framework characterizing possible research, development, and market penetration strategies. This approach was felt to be so novel in its requirements that the acquisition of data had to be reduced to a low level. Nevertheless, we hope that the results of this study and related ones will remove the institutional obstacles. A short discussion is presented on relevant structures of appropriate models. After this the temporal structure of R & D for technologies is discussed. Several technologies are presented.
