Worldwide demand of energy is growing and will continue to do so for the next decades to come. The International Energy Agency (IEA) has estimated that global primary energy demand will increase by 40-50% from 2003 to 2030.
Since energy production, transportation and consumption put considerable pressure on the environment, there is serious concern regarding the sustainability of energy consumption.
While Green House Gas emissions and climate changes are of special interest, transition to a mix of other, sustainable energy sources brings about environmental impact on local and regional scale that has yet to be incorporated in order to make a balanced estimate of the cost-benefit ratio for the environment and society. EnerGEO aims to provide a versatile modelling platform that will enable planners, environmentalists and governments to calculate, forecast and monitor the environmental impact of changes in the energy mix on local, regional and global scales.
