Payback // 2001 // Francine Pascal // Simon and Schuster, 2001 // 9780743434102 // 224 pages Total cost of ownership, payback, and consumer preference modeling of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, motor vehicles represent one of the widely owned assets in the US. A vehicle's ownership cost includes fixed expenses to purchase and own the vehicle and variable costs to use and operate the vehicle. Policymakers, analysts and consumers are interested in understanding. Empirical investigation of the energy payback time for photovoltaic modules, energy payback time is the energy analog to financial payback, defined as the time necessary for a photovoltaic panel to generate the energy equivalent to that used to produce it. This research contributes to the growing literature on net benefits of renewable energy. Energy payback and lifeâ cycle CO2 emissions of the BOS in an optimized 3· 5 MW PV installation, this study is a life-cycle analysis of the balance of system (BOS) components of the 3· 5 MW p multi-crystalline PV installation at Tucson Electric Power's (TEP) Springerville, AZ field PV plant. TEP instituted an innovative PV installation program guided by design optimization. A chance-constrained approach to capital budgeting with portfolio type payback and liquidity constraints and horizon posture controls, introduction This is an exploratory paper. In particular, it consists of explora- tions conducted around some of the possibilities that might be offered for capital budgeting via recently developed methods, eg, chance-constrained programming, linear programming under uncertainty, etc. These. Birth to death analysis of the energy payback ratio and CO2 gas emission rates from coal, fission, wind, and DT-fusion electrical power plants, the amount of electrical energy produced over the lifetime of coal, LWR fission, UP fusion, and wind power plants is compared to the total amount of energy required to procure the fuel, build, operate, and decommission the power plants. The energy payback ratio varies. How can payback from health services research be assessed, throughout the world there is a growing recognition that health care should be research-led. This strengthens the requirement for expenditure on health services research to be justified by demonstrating the benefits it produces. However, payback from health research. Environmental payback time analysis of a roof-mounted building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) system in Hong Kong, this paper reports the investigation results of the energy payback time (EPBT) and greenhouse-gas payback time (GPBT) of a rooftop BIPV system (grid-connected) in Hong Kong to measure its sustainability. The 22 kWp PV array is facing south with inclined angle. Energy payback time and carbon footprint of commercial photovoltaic systems, energy payback time and carbon footprint of commercial roof-top photovoltaic systems are calculated based on new 2011 manufacturers' data; and on 2013 equipment manufacturers' estimates of micromorph silicon photovoltaic modules. The energy payback times. Carbon payback times for crop-based biofuel expansion in the tropics: the effects of changing yield and technology, biofuels from land-rich tropical countries may help displace foreign petroleum imports for many industrialized nations, providing a possible solution to the twin challenges of energy security and climate change. But concern is mounting that crop-based biofuels will increase. Photovoltaics energy payback times, greenhouse gas emissions and external costs: 2004-early 2005 status, life cycle assessments and external cost estimates of photovoltaics have been often based on old data that do not reflect the extensive technological progress made over the past decade. Our assessment uses current (2004-early 2005) manufacturing data, from twelve. Construction costs, chemical composition and payback time of high-and low-irradiance leaves, the effect of irradiance on leaf construction costs, chemical composition, and on the payback time of leaves was investigated. To enable more generalized conclusions, three different systems were studied: top and the mostshaded leaves of 10 adult tree species. Payback time': community volunteering among older adults as a transformative mechanism, this qualitative study explores the conditions and experiences of older adults''formal'volunteering through non-profit organisations (NPOs) in Toronto from both organisational and individual perspectives. In spite of the ageing population and the need for NPOs. Some new views on the payback period and capital budgeting decisions, the Payback Period has been dismissed as misleading and worthless by most writers on capital budgeting at the same time that businessmen continue to utilise this concept. This paper seeks to identify the problems which businessmen try to solve by use of the payback. Construction costs and payback time of biomass: a whole plant perspective, literature data were compiled on the construction costs of plant biomass, that is, the amount of glucose required to construct one gram of biomass. No evidence was found for more than a slight variation in construction costs, with leaves of herbaceous species somewhat more. Observability and the payback criterion, the payback criterion continues to be widely used in industry, although there is little support for it among the academicians. This paper attempts to find an economic rationale for it by using an incentive model with asymmetric information. It argues that when the managers. Evaluating payback on biomedical research from papers cited in clinical guidelines: applied bibliometric study, objectives: To develop a methodology for evaluating the impact of research on health care, and to characterise the papers cited on clinical guidelines. Design: The bibliographic details of the papers cited in 15 clinical guidelines, developed in and for the United Kingdom, were. Review on life cycle assessment of energy payback and greenhouse gas emission of solar photovoltaic systems, this paper aims to examine the sustainability and environmental performance of PV-based electricity generation systems by conducting a thorough review of the life cycle assessment (LCA) studies of five common photovoltaic (PV) systems, ie, mono-crystalline (mono-Si. Energy intensities, EROIs (energy returned on invested), and energy payback times of electricity generating power plants, the energy returned on invested, EROI, has been evaluated for typical power plants representing wind energy, photovoltaics, solar thermal, hydro, natural gas, biogas, coal and nuclear power. The strict exergy concept with no primary energy weighting, updated. Solar cells with one-day energy payback for the factories of the future, scalability is a requirement before any new energy source can be expected to house a possible solution to the challenge that mankind's increasing energy demand presents. No renewable energy source is as abundant as the Sun and yet efficient and low-cost. The 'payback framework'explained, abstract The Payback Framework, originally developed to examine the 'impact'or 'payback'of health services research, is explained. The Payback Framework is a research tool used to facilitate data collection and cross-case analysis by providing a common structure. by MP Narayanan
