THE ANALYSIS OF ENERGY SUPPLY, HYDROGEN AND OTHER NEW ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES. THE WOIL-MODEL DEVELOPMENT, APPLICATION AND CASE STUDIES.

Objective

THE APPLICATION OF WOIL WILL ENABLE THE COMMISSION SERVICES TO BETTER UNDERSTAND THE SENSITIVITY OF WORLD OIL PRICES TO CHANGE IN BOTH WORLD AND EC ECONOMIC ACTIVITIES, AND TO GENERATE INTERNALLY CONSISTENT WORLD OIL PRICES AND PRODUCTION SCENARIOS TO ASSIST IN TESTING E.E.C. ENERGY POLICY INITIATIVES.

THE EVALUATION OF TECHNOLOGIES, RESULTING FROM NEW INVESTMENT, REQUIRES A SYSTEMATIC APPROACH TO DEFINING AND DEVELOPING METHODS OF ESTIMATING THE COSTS AND BENEFITS INVOLVED. IT WILL REQUIRE THE HARMONISATION OF CURRENT NATIONAL WORK AND, SUBSEQUENTLY, COMPARISON OF VARIOUS ENERGY POLICIES.THE EC IS ALREADY A SUBSTANTIAL USER OF HYDROGEN AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF ADVANCED ELECTROLYSIS TECHNIQUES COULD PROVIDE CONSIDERABLE SHORT TERM AND LONG TERM STRATEGIC ADVANTAGES TO THE COMMUNITY. IN CLOSE COLLABORATION WITH THE OECD/IEA THIS RESEARCH STUDY WILL BE DIRECTED TOWARDS A DETAILED EXAMINATION OF THESE SOCIO-ECONOMIC IMPACTS WITH THE OBJECTIVE OF QUANTIFYING THE RESULTS RELATIVE TO THE OVERALL ENERGY SUPPLY PICTURE.

- COMMUNITY COLLABORATION WITH THE U.S.A. DOE AND BNL.

THE FIRST AREA OF RESEARCH IS THAT OF THE WORLD OIL MODEL (WOIL)
-TO ACCOUNT FOR THE GEOGRAPHIC AREA OF THE EC
-TO MORE ACCURETELY REPRESENT THE CENTRALLY PLANNED ECONOMIES
-TO EXTEND THE TIME HORIZON TO 2020
-TO TRANSFER THE MODEL TO A PERSONAL COMPUTER.

- EFFECTS OF NEW TECHNOLOGIES.

THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP A METHOD BY WHICH THE EVOLUTION OF NEW TECHNOLOGIES FROM THE SPECIFICS OF THE TECHNOLOGICAL PROCESS TO ITS COMMERCIAL CONCEPTUAL DESIGN, DIRECTED TOWARDS FINAL INTEGRATION INTO A COMPETITIVE MARKET PLACE, IS TREATED AS STOCHASTIC PROCESS.

- HYDROGEN IN COLLABORATION WITH OECD/IEA.

THIS RESEARCH CARRIED OUT IN CLOSE COLLABORATION WITH THE OECD/IEA IS DIRECTED TOWARDS A DETAILED EXAMINATION OF THE SOCIO-ECONOMIC IMPACTS OF ADVANCED ELECTROLYSIS TECHNIQUES WITH THE OBJECTIVE OF QUANTIFYING THE RESULTS RELATIVE TO THE OVERALL ENERGY SUPPLY PICTURE.

- CONSULTANCY.

THE OBJECTIVE IS TO ENSURE THE HARMONISATION OF THE INTERNATIONAL EFFORTS DIRECTED TOWARDS THE APPLICATION OF ENERGY ORIENTED MODELS WITH SECTORAL DIMENSIONS BETWEEN THE INTERESTED ENERGY MODELLING COMMUNITIES OF THE EC AND THE US.
