Assumptions about future conditions (e.g. fuel prices) are more or less uncertain. Since energy investment projects most often are characterised by high costs and a planned long term utilisation, missallocation of resources may be very expensive.

Furthermore, possible guidelines for decision-making under uncertainty are illustrated. Finally the boundaries of this analytical approach are highlighted.
