Assessments of Technologies Developed under Future Energy Systems

The overall objective of this project is conduct the life cycle assessment (LCA) and techno-economic assessment (TEA) of the energy technologies developed under the Future Energy Systems (FES). The technology focused themes including solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, carbon capture utilization & storage, heavy oil, smart grids, non-electric infrastructure and land & water would be the key focus of this project. It is critical for FES to assess these technologies in terms of its life cycle environmental impacts and cost of producing energy/fuels or products from these technologies. The ultimate aim of this project is to identify the technologies which have the potential of being economically viable and environmentally sustainable. The LCA of the technologies would help in estimating greenhouse gas emissions and energy return on investment (EROI) i.e. ratio of energy output to input over life cycle. The TEA of the technologies would help in estimation the cost assessment of energy/products from these technologies. This project would be complementary to Dr. Kumar’s research under the Industrial Research Chair Program (IRC).
