Abstract

Assessment of external costs for electricity production in Slovenia based on the ExternE methodology M. Gerbec and B. Kontic Jozef Stefan Institute, Slovenia Abstract The ExtemE methodology for the estimation of external costs due to energy production is briefly summarised. The methodology was implemented for the estimation of externalities due to thermal power plant Sostanj (Slovenia) for the years 1994, 1998 and 2001. Results show that the estimated regional external costs are in the range of 174/118/46 mEURO/kWh for the years 1994/1998/2001, respectively (applying costs ofCOz emissions at 18 EURO/t). The human health damages on adult population represent major part of the monetized damages due to secondary sulphate aerosols impacts and the consequently decreased expected lifetime of humans (1070/630/63 years on common European population, for the years 1994/1998/2001, respectively). 1 Introduction The environmental pollution from energy production is a widely re
