Sensitivity and Risk Analysis


As part of the RETScreen Clean Energy Project Analysis Software, a Sensitivity and Risk Analysis worksheet is provided to help the user estimate the sensitivity of important financial indicators in relation to key technical and financial parameters. This standard sensitivity and risk analysis worksheet contains a settings section and two main sections: Sensitivity analysis and Risk analysis. Each section provides information on the relationship between the key parameters and the important financial indicators, showing the parameters which have the greatest impact on the financial indicators. The Sensitivity analysis section is intended for general use, while the Risk analysis section, which performs a Monte Carlo simulation, is intended for users with knowledge of statistics.

Both types of analysis are optional. Inputs entered in this worksheet will not affect results in other worksheets.
