CEESA integrates existing energy and environmental analysis tools in a unique way. Through a combination of life cycle assessment and energy system and market analysis methodologies, the project is able to meet three of the major challenges of future sustainable energy systems:
- How to integrate the transport sector,
- How to develop future power systems suitable for the integration of distributed renewable energy sources, and
- How to develop public regulation in an international market environment.
The aim is to achieve a 100% renewable energy system. The project identifies which ways to follow in order to achieve this goal. The project combines system modelling, life cycle assessment, electric technology, and public regulation.
