Development and application of a multi-criteria software decision analysis tool for renewable energy sources-MCDA-RES

Project Details


To develop a Software Decision Tool they'll enable the Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis of RES investments and apply it in three case-studies. Secondary objectives are: - to promote RES in isolated regions under distributed generation and deregulated energy markets; - to map social preference of stakeholders in an energy-environment-economy framework, to eliminate uncertainties and risk of new technologies; - to assist with environmental protection and emission reductions; - to encourage creation of new skilled jobs; - to invigorate the EU's RES manufacturing industry; - to reduce oil imports; - to demonstrate innovative methodological solutions and their integration in realistic operating conditions; - to enhance the security and diversity of energy systems in isolated areas; - to enable local authorities, non-governmental organizations, central government, participating in Group Decision Analysis for RES investments; - to promote internet-based exchange of technical and other expertise in RES applications.
