Our flagship project and the one that gives name to the lab.
In the LIVEN project, we create a research and Innovation living lab where we co-develop and adapt the modular environmental assessment tool ENBIOS to overcome shortcomings of current energy models, which are too focused on decarbonization and leave aside other environmental impacts. ENBIOS is an open-access tool that combines the bottom-up high-resolution LCA approach with the multiscale hierarchical perspective of the MuSIASEM methodology and can be adapted to assess the environmental impacts of energy plans at the global, national, regional, and local levels. The project includes three case studies: Spain, Catalonia, and the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona.
The LIVEN project is structured into four stages:
