Economics projects

A common aim is to achieve environmental goals at least cost. The methodology for this is to first collate the costs and effects of different improvement measures, and then find the combination of those measures which reaches goals at least cost using optimisation techniques. Mark Barrett has carried out several projects in transport and energy using this methodology.
