This publication provides a basic guideline to the application of Resource Exergy Analysis (REA). REA is a proven application of exergy analysis to the field of technology comparison.
REA aims to help decision makers to obtain an indicator in addition to GHG emissions, that is grounded in science.
Resource exergy consumption can replace the less comprehensive primary energy consumption as an indictor and reduce the risk of suboptimal decisions.
Evaluating energy systems using REA is key to ensure that climate targets are reached in time.
