ExternE - externalities of energy, Methodology 2005 updateFunded under: FP6-SUSTDEV
The internalisation of external costs is a key element for the implementation of sustainable development in Europe. The so-called "ExternE methodology" has been updated in order to better quantify the social and environmental damages of energy, especially those provoked by air pollution coming from energy production and consumption. In order to improve the quality of the environment and to reduce the negative impacts from pollution on human health, policy choices have to made. These choices need to be based on a complete and coherent methodology for accounting for external costs.
