CMI Project 4.3.13: Optimizing the economic performance of CMI technologies

Current COVID-19 Community Level: LOW (Updated Feb. 3) CDC COVID-19 County Check

John Sutherland at Purdue University leads the CMI project "Optimizing the economic performance of CMI technologies"

Techno-Economic Analysis (TEA) is a technique that combines production cost modeling with customer/financial analysis to provide decision-making insight to research and development. Our commitments calls for: (1) performing TEAs in collaboration with CMI researchers at the earliest technology readiness level (TRL) stage possible; and (2) developing a TEA software tool for CMI scientists/engineers.
