CAP_M and break-even analysis), but those are not treated here. 1 Expected Value (EV) Analysis EV analysis provides a simple way of taking into account uncertainty about input values, but it does not provide an explicit measure of risk in the outcome. It is helpful in explaining and illustrating risk attitudes. 7) Example of EV analysis: The following simplified example illustrates the combining of EV analysis and NPV analysis to support a purchase decision. Assume that a not-for-profit organization must decide whether to buy a given piece of energy-saving equipment.

This chapter provides an introduction to some basic methods that are helpful in designing and sizing cost-effective systems, and in determining whether it is economically efficient to invest in specific energy efficiency or renewable energy projects. The chapter does not treat macroeconomic methods and national market-penetration models for measuring economic impacts of energy efficiency and renewable energy investments on the national economy. It provides sufficient guidance for computing the measures of economic performance for relatively simple investment choices, and it provides the fundamentals for dealing with complex investment decisions.
