ABSTRACT:  Tired of making decisions based on guesswork and intuition? Want to take your project to the next level? Then it's time to embrace the power of techno-economic analysis! 

What is techno-economic analysis?

  • A techno-economic analysis is a framework that connects technical expertise with business fundamentals to give you an idea of the costs, benefits, and risks involved in any new technology or project.
  • By considering factors such as production costs, scalability, market demand, and competition, it provides valuable insights that help you confidently make informed decisions.
  • In this talk, we’ll discuss how you can approach techno-economic analysis and go through a few examples of how you can use the analysis to draw valuable insights.
