Abstract

A comprehensive assessment of energy systems includes environmental impacts, health risks, and economic aspects. One important issue deals with air pollution caused by the anthropogenic emissions from these systems, In the frame of the Swiss project "Comprehensive Assessment of Energy Systems" (Ganzheitliche Betrachtung von Energiesystemen, GaBE), concentrations and deposition of pollutants in Switzerland are calculated using a 3- dimensional chemical dispersion model. In view of the future energy systems, influences of variations in input parameters such as emissions, wind and pollutant concentrations in Switzerland as well as beyond the Swiss borders are investigated. Results will be interpreted in terms of damage for the en
