The SAPIENT project addresses the general issue of energy systems analysis by considering all driving forces and policies that induce energy technology improvement and by evaluating all environmental, energy and economic implications from such an improvement. For this purpose, the project use existing tools, namely the major European large-scale energy technology evolution. Also the project aims at developing a model- integrating decision-oriented tool to evaluate R&D policy priorities under uncertainty. The systems analysis covers the European Union and the World, addresses the global warming policy issues in the presence of liberalised energy market, and aims at constructing complete energy scenarios that will put forward the role of induced technology progress.
