This paper describes a methodological study that is conducted in the framework of the project ’CO2 emission reduction strategies for Eastern Europe’, commissioned by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs (project number 7124). Since CO2 emissions are largely dependent on energy consumption and supply mix, an extensive study into the current situation and possible future developments in the energy sector in Central European countries has been started. Energy demand projections, energy supply, and energy technologies are researched. The presented method concerns the identification of the cost-effectiveness of lifetime extension of existing power plants which can currently be observed in Central European countries. The method will be used in the country studies for the Czech Republic, Slovakia, PoIand, and Hungary using the Linear Programming model EFOM-ENV/GAMS.
