Operations research
ORDECSYS is a research and consultancy firm created in 2003 by professors and researchers from the University of Geneva. Since then, it has been providing methods and tools for techno-economic analysis within the framework of international research and consultancy contracts. ORDECSYS is specialized in systems optimization, decision under uncertainty and risk management. ORDECSYS applies these methods, in particular to modeling the energy transition and the economics of climatic change.
