Security of Energy Considering its Uncertainty, Risks and Economic implications (SECURE)

The SECURE project develops appropriate tools for evaluating the vulnerability of the EU to the different energy supply risks, and for promoting the optimization of EU energy insecurity mitigation strategies, including investment, demand side management and dialogue with producing countries. The Technology Assessment (TA) group is leading the activities on “Development and application of methodology for assessing the impacts of severe accidents and terrorist threat” and for “Multi-Criteria Analysis of policy options”. Furthermore, in the context of "Multi-Criteria Analysis of policy options", the TA group developed an online decision support tool: secure-mcda. Additionally, the TA group is contributing to several other work packages. The project takes a global as well as a sectoral view in its analysis of all major energy sources and technologies, integrating issues of both supply and demand.
