TAESS Features


Which are the main TAESS features?

TAESS is a software tool designed to help in the thermoeconomic analysis of energy systems. It requires information about the thermodynamic model and the productive structure of the system. The main features of TAESS are:

  • User interface based on Microsoft Excel 2007/2010.
  • Import thermodynamic data from external applications.
  • Automatic generation of the Fuel-Product table.
  • Exergy cost computation.
  • Analysis of the formation cost of product and residues.
  • Thermoeconomic diagnosis.

The current version of TAESS provides an application launcher that allows to create an Excel worksheet from a template, which contains the macros to compute and to format the results.

The new features of version 2 are:

  • User interface based on Office 2007/2010 Ribbon
  • Improved input Fuel-Product definition

The Material Limits of Energy Transition: Thanatia

Antonio Valero Capilla, Alicia Valero Delgado and Guiomar Calvo

This book provides a holistic view of raw mineral depletion in the context of renewable energy transistion.

The material limits Thanatia


Thanatia. Los límites minerales del planeta

mites minerales del planeta

 Antonio Valero Capilla and Alicia Valero Delgado interviewed by Adrián Almazán

We need a material transition, not only energetic, that restores nature and effectively reuses materials. Gaia must be cared for by extending life on Earth and slowing its degradation towards Thanatia.

Thermodynamics for Sustainable Management of Natural Resources

Cover Thermodynamics

Wojciech Stanek (Editor)

This book examines ways of assessing the rational management of nonrenewable resources. Integrating numerous methods, it systematically exposes the strengths of exergy analysis in resources management.

Thanatia: The Destiny of the Earth's Mineral Resources

Cover Thanatia

A Thermodynamic Cradle-to-Cradle Assessment by (author): Antonio Valero Capilla and Alicia Valero Delgado

Is Gaia becoming Thanatia, a resource exhausted planet? For how long can our high-tech society be sustained in the light of declining mineral ore grades, heavy dependence on un-recycled critical metals and accelerated material dispersion? These are all root causes of future disruptions that need to be addressed today.
