EVALUATION METHOD FOR ADVANCED ACID RAIN COMPLIANCE

A key challenge for potential developers of technology to control emissions is to evaluate uncertainties in the performance and cost of a new concept. This paper presents a research planning method that can be used to help answer questions relating to such performance. The salient features of the method include the following: development of engineering performance and costs models; a probabilistic modeling capability to incorporate uncertainties; judgments regarding uncertainties, applications, and research; using the models to answer key questions relating to trade-offs, costs, payoffs and risks; and decision analysis to select a course of action. An example of a technology innovation is used to illustrate the research planning method.
