About- Heriot-Watt is a specialist, pioneering University, with a global presence, world renowned, innovative research and highly employable graduates. This PhD research aims to devise a project valuation and decision framework that incorporates the dynamics of the new carbon economy. Compared to traditional models, new constraints are in place, yet at the same time, novel ways of value creation have also appeared.
