nonparametric analysis

Halkos, George & Tzeremes, Nickolaos & Tzeremes, Panagiotis, 2014. "A nonparametric approach for evaluating long-term energy policy scenarios: An application to the Greek energy system," MPRA Paper 59994, University Library of Munich, Germany.

This paper by using the system of LEAP (Long range Energy Alternatives Planning System) constructs four different energy scenarios for the Greek transport, energy and industry sectors. By projecting the renewable energy use for the years 2020 and 2030 and the associated resulting carbon dioxide emissions, the paper constructs through nonparametric analysis efficiency measures evaluating the different energy policy which can be adopted. As a result it provides a quantitative measure of future policy performance under different energy consumption scenarios.
