Environmental and ecological life cycle inventories for present and future power systems in europe (ECLIPSE)

Objective

The general objective of the project is to overcome current limitations of the use of Life Cycle Inventories (LCI) for energy modelling and planning and other uses. Potential users of project results will be provided with
1) Application-dependent methodological framework and guidelines related to the quantification over the life cycle of environmental impacts from power generation in Europe;
2) A harmonised and methodologically coherent set of data on new and decentralised power systems. Data will be provided in a format that makes them comparable to existing data of other energy technologies, easily adaptable to local conditions and technological improvement, and updatable.
3)Explicit user-oriented examples for a correct use of LCI of present and future power systems in Europe. Project results will increase the credibility, diffusion and exploitation of LCI.
