escalation rates in order to facilitate the computation of life cycle costs.
AQUASTOR will subsequently be used to define, describe, and evaluate represen-
tative systems for the major STES applications.
Using data collected through the ATES Demonstration Program, sensitivity
analyses will be performed on each of the applications to develop an envelope
of economically reasonable conditions for each application. The Economic
Assessment Task will investigate the effects of:
. aquifer characteristics and the resultant efficiency
. financing modes
. government subsidies.
In addition, the task will investigate the economic benefits that would accrue
from improvements in technology in various subsystems of ATES systems.
The Economic Assessment Task will also estimate the potential for ATES
implementation. A linear programming model will be developed to provide
market penetration estimates for ATES based upon economics and input from
technical components of the STES Program.
The most promising alternate seasonal thermal energy storage techniques
will be analyzed. The Economic Analysis Task will recommend alternatives that
merit further research and/or development. The task will also estimate the
commercial potential of alternate technologies.
