SAPIENTIA: Systems Analysis for Progress and Innovation in Energy Technologies for Integrated Assessment
On the other hand, SAPIENTA is no mere extension of SAPIENT. Keeping closely in mind the above aim, it expands significantly the scope by introducing more technologies (candidates for Community R&D support), describing more fully and operationally spill-overs between technologies, enlarging the set of objectives to include the often intractable but all the same politically very important sustainable development considerations, brings into the policy exploration exercises for the longer term, addresses the issues of the relative efficacy of research versus demonstration, puts energy R&D in the context of R&D addressed to other economic sectors and finally concentrates on the methodical use of ISPA involving decision makers capable of interacting with analysts.
