MetadataShow full item record
The objective of this study was to develop an approach to integrate LCA of different fuels and energy conversion technologies into the energy planning tool eTransport. Course LCA's for relevant energy commodities, infrastructure and transport services was performed, and the results from these prepared for implementation in eTransport. In the choice of methodology for integration, a lot of aspects needs consideration. These are described throughout the report and emphasized in the choice of methodology. The methodology is illustrated by a case study on Trondheim municipality, followed by a description on how this would be done in eTransport. This project is a groundwork regarding implementation of LCA in eTransport, and will be followed up by further student work, testing the method in practice.
