Expertise

  • (i) Techno-economic assessments (TEA) of emerging green/clean environmental & energy technologies; prospective assessments towards a sustainable and/or circular economy (ii) Sustainability assessments; integration of environmental aspects with techno-economic assessments; sustainable value approach; sustainability indicators (iii) Environmental valuation of climate change (adaptation): Ricardian method to assess the economic impact of climate change on agriculture (iv) Environmental valuation of resource use and ecosystem services: stated preferences (discrete choice experiments; contingent valuation) and revealed preferences (hedonic pricing) I developed and applied the sustainable value approach to assess farm performance. I also developed systemic techno-economic assessments (TEA) of several clean technologies and I realized the integration of environmental aspects with techno-economic assessments. Furthermore, I applied and developed both revealed (hedonic pricing method) and stated preferences methods (discrete choice modeling). I measured the economic impact of climate change on agriculture using a continental scale Ricardian method and I study the economic benefits of climate change adaptation in agriculture.
