The tutorial for TAESS gives a fast introduction of the capabilities of the program, how to install it and how to make a thermoeconomic analysis of a simple energy system.

You could find TAESS Web Help for Version 2.0 here

To get the tutorial as a PDF file follow this links:

A tutorial presentation about TAESS could be follow this link (5.6MB): ppt_ico TAESS_ECOS07.pps

A more detailed information about the functionality of TAESS can be found in the following document (350KB):  pdf_ico.png TAESS_ECOS07.pdf

In the following link you can find a list of the most relevant bibliography in Thermoeconomic Analysis.

In the CIRCE web page you also can find a scientific database with an extensive collection of publications on Thermoeconomics.


The TAESS distribution includes folder with several examples of themodynamic cycles. If you like to contribute you could send us your own examples and they will be included in the distribution, with our acknowledges

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.
