Q1. What are the contributions in "A comparison of cost-benefit analysis of biomass and natural gas chp projects in denmark and the netherlands" ?
The authors investigate what drives differences in the project appraisal of biomass and natural gas combined heat and power ( CHP ) projects in two countries with very similar energy profiles. Concurrently, it is also promoting the use of cost benefit analysis ( CBA ) for transnational energy infrastructure projects. The authors use CBA to assess the same project proposal in Denmark and the Netherlands, following the respective country 's guidelines. This is of importance as the European Commission is assessing the potential scope of harmonizing renewable electricity support schemes post 2020. Furthermore, the authors establish that the sensitivity of the CBA results not only from policy differences in the countries, but also from differences in the methodology
Q2. What have the authors stated for future works in "A comparison of cost-benefit analysis of biomass and natural gas chp projects in denmark and the netherlands" ?
The authors suggest that further research in the formulation of CBA methodology for a common EC policy framework includes case studies to demonstrate the extent of sensitivity both due from natural variations between states and from discrepancies in the approach used.
