Assessment of the eMergy sustainability index for the fusion technology
Reference persons LAURA SAVOLDI
Research Groups MAHTEP
Thesis type RESEARCH, INNOVATIVE
Description While the cost analysis of a fusion power plant is being investigated based on simplified models of physics, engineering and economical aspects (e.g. using the PROCESS tool), and the role of fusion in the energy mix is being addressed using the EURO-fusion TIMES Model (ETM), the eMergy analysis is gaining relevance as an innovative methodology suited to assess the "embedded energy" of a given product or commodity and then to evaluate its environmental impact. This thesis aims at consistently evaluate the Emergy Sustainabiity Index for nuclear fusion power plants, in order to contribute to the issue of its social and environmental acceptability for the future European energy mix.
