PICASO: Planificación de la implementación de combustibles alternativos en el sector energético español para un transporte sostenible

Research project corresponding to the call 2015 and reference: ENE2015-74607-JIN, within the State Program of Research, Development and Innovation Oriented Challenges of the Society under the National Plan for Scientific Research and Technological Innovation 2013-2016 (Young researchers 2015).

In the PICASO project, sustainability indicators will be compiled and calculated for each energy product involved, with emphasis on the different options available for renewable electricity, hydrogen and biofuels produced through thermochemical pathways. In addition to conventional performance indicators, life-cycle sustainability indicators will be quantified (e.g., human health, ecosystem quality and climate change) since they provide a holistic approach to the energy systems evaluated. Methodologies based on Life Cycle Assessment will be therefore used.
