Abstract

The purpose of this report is to provide guidelines for conducting analyses of the risks and benefits of alternative energy systems in an effective manner. There are considerable difficulties in carrying out such analyses as described in our previous study for the European Atomic Energy Community entitled Assessment of comparative and non-comparative factors in alternative energy systems'. The objective of the present study is to carry out several of these recommendations made in the initial study, leading to rational and effective approaches for analysing risks and benefits in alternative energy systems and meaningful presentation of the results to the user community. The result will be guidelines and methods that can be directly employed in such analyses and presentations. Except for examples illustrating the methodologies described in the guidelines, no actual analyses are carried out in this report.
