Research Theme: Sustainability assessment tools � development and application
(Contact person: Prof. Dr. Shabbir H. Gheewala)
The research will focus on developing tools for sustainability assessment in a life cycle perspective. These tools will also be applied to various aspects of energy conversion and use. Life cycle assessment will be a major tool for environmental assessment, life cycle costing for economic assessment and social life cycle assessment, which is currently under development at the international level, for social assessment. The areas of interest include conventional and alternative power production, transportation fuels as well as energy technologies in general. As part of this process, scenarios focusing on energy systems will be developed to provide images of how the future might enfold and assist in the assessment of impacts, adaptation and mitigation. The scenario analysis would help provide stakeholders and decision-makers with a broad view of the possibilities for energy technologies available over the long term.
