SURE-DSS (Decision Support System) tool by Judith Cherni at Imperial College and Isaac Dyner at Universidad Nacional de Colombia
The RESURL (Renewable Energy for Sustainable Rural Livelihoods) research project which promotes clean and modern sustainable energy technology was set up by Dr Judith Cherni and Prof. Dennis Anderson of Imperial College London taking place in two phases (08/01 to 07/04 and 08/04 to 03/06). RESURL examined and visited remote areas of developing countries to assess the barriers that have interfered with the expected performance of energy systems such as solar panels, diesel generators, micro-hydro plants and wind turbines. RESURL then designed a multi-criteria methodology, called the Sustainable Rural Energy-Decision Support System (SURE-DSS) tool, to be used to assist rural energy decision-making. RESURL was funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and was built on a partnership with the following organisations under the leadership of the Centre for Energy Policy and Technology (ICCEPT) at Imperial College London:
- The Cuban Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment.
- The Central University of Las Villas, Cuba.
- The National University of Colombia.
- The International NGO Practical Actions Solutions for Poverty (formerly ITDG), at Peru and UK.
To have an idea of numbers, we'd be grateful if you could let us know if you are likely to attend (and whether you would want to order food).
