This project focuses on developing a system- and pathway-level lifecycle assessment (LCA) tool, which is called the Sustainable Energy Systems Analysis Modeling Environment (SESAME), a publicly available, open-access model with multi-sector representation. To provide economy-wide scenarios for the SESAME tool, an economy-wide, multi-sector, multi-region computable general equilibrium (CGE) model (the MIT Economic Projection and Policy Analysis model (EPPA)) will be employed. Case studies focused on Norway and Singapore will be performed to demonstrate the capability of the tool, which will be developed at the MIT Energy Initiative.
