Assessment Methodologies: Energy, mobility and other real world application
The use of assessment methodologies is becoming increasingly important in the decision making process under very different environments. There are increasing concerns about making the best possible use of the limited available resources. There is also an increasing will of justifying the decisions in a sound way. This is even more important when considering public spending, public scrutiny and governance accountability. The use of recognized assessment techniques is actually mandatory in many situations, considering environmental, social, economic and sustainability concerns.<br />This book gathers contributions from several authors, advancing the state-ofthe- art and presenting examples of applications of assessment methodologies in energy, mobility and other real world applications.<br />This book appears in the context of a workshop organized under project EMSuRE – Energy and Mobility for Sustainable Regions. EMSuRe is a project from the University of Coimbra, funded by QREN, Mais Centro and the European Union, which started in 2013 and will end in 2015.
