Sustainable energy is the practice of using energy in a way that "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.". Meeting the world's needs for electricity, heating, cooling, and power for transport in a sustainable way is widely considered to be one of the greatest challenges facing humanity in the 21st century.

Sustainable Assessment Method Sustainable Assessment Method for Energy Systems book Energy Systems: Indicators, Criteria and Decision Making Procedure by Naim Hamdia Afgan, Maria Graça Carvalho Unknown, Pages, Published ISBN / ISBN / Naim Hamdia Afgan, Maria Graça : Collects original contributions from various researchers to provide a review of the main assessment tools/methods/approaches connected to sustainable energy.

Covers both methods and applications of multi-criteria, fuzzy-sets, algorithm genetics and neural nets (artificial intelligence) and simulations using Monte Carlo analysis, linear programming (LP) and others approaches for energy systems.

More importantly, energy systems are designed, analyzed, assessed and evaluated in accordance to sustainable tools for more sustainable future. This book comprehensively covers these aspects, harmonizing them in a way that offers distinct perspectives for energy, the environment and sustainable.

Abstract This paper introduces a new and comprehensive sustainability assessment model for energy systems. The model follows an integrated approach and explores various disciplines that influence.

Major revisions to this edition reflect the current changes in technology and energy use and focus on new analyses, data, and methods necessary to understand and actively participate in the transition to sustainable energy.

Throughout the book, analytical methods for energy and economic analysis and design give users a quantitative appreciation. The sustainability assessment methodology has to be demonstrated in order to become the tool in the engineering practice.

This chapter is devoted to the attempt to evaluate the sustainability of energy systems and show how it can be used in the everyday engineering by: The proposed framework for integrated sustainability assessment of energy systems is outlined in Fig.

It involves the following steps: 1. selection of environmental, economic and social indicators to be used for measuring the sustainability; 2.

selection and specification of energy technologies; 3. definition of scenarios and the time horizon; by: The scope and boundaries of the sustainable assessment method are critical; the figure below shows what can be used as a conceptual framework in terms of the wider perspective of sustainable issues in current buildings assessment methods, such a scope consisting of three “dimensions”: Criteria, Time and Scale (Cole, ).
