THE EFFECTIVENESS OF TECHNOLOGICAL ANALYSIS IN THE ENERGY FIELD

Objective

TASK ONE SHALL UTILISE INSTRUMENTS DEVELOPED UNDER THE PREVIOUS CONTRACT TO EVALUATE THE USE OF ALTERNATIVE ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES IN ADDRESSING THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEM.
TAK TWO WILL PROVIDE A MEANS OF INCREASING THE VALUE OF EXPERT OPINION, INITIALLY IN COST-PRICE ASSESSMENTS LEADING TOWARDS IMPROVED ENERGY EVALUATIONS IN GENERAL.
TASK THREE WILL GENERATE THE COMMUNITY VIEW FROM VARIOUS MEMBER STATES AND OTHER STUDIES.
This study on the commercial future of fusion technology, given the considerable uncertainty that exists with regard to the data, has been conducted as a stochastic analysis. The first observations on probable outcomes based upon the bus bar costs of fusion generated electricity have been produced.
THE ACTIVITIES OF THIS CONTRACT CAN BE SUBDIVISED INTO THE FOLLOWING THREE MAIN TASKS:

- THE ASSESSMENT OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS OF ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES, PARTICULARLY CO2, IN ORDER TO IDENTIFY THEIR CONTRIBUTION TOWARDS THE REDUCTION OF THIS PROBLEM.

- THE DEVELOPMENT OF EXPERT SYSTEMS TO INITIALLY ADDRESS ENERGY COST ASSESSMENT, AND IN PARTICULAR TO IDENTIFY LONG TERM FUEL PRICE PROJECTIONS
- TO HARMONISE THE VARIOUS RESULTS THAT HAVE BEEN OBTAINED UNDER THE PREVIOUS CONTRACT, AND THOSE ANTICIPATED FROM OTHER DG XII ACTIVITIES.
