A cost-benefit analysis will be performed as an initial analysis and a final analysis with two different objectives:
- The initial analysis should provide a complete theoretical evaluation of the potential and limitations of the technology and outline the most critical parameters from the best possible estimate of all influential parameters. How much should cost be reduced, lifetime increased or environmental impacts reduced to obtain a positive current net value? This will focus the tasks in the remainder of work packages and target the work.
- The final analysis should provide an evaluation of the potential and limitations from the results of the mix optimization and experiences with the test sections. Is it possible to obtain what is needed for a positive current net value or is further research and development work still needed? This serves as an evaluation of the results and a guideline for the effort still remaining.
