  1. “Multi” means that multi-objective utility function was maximized, and the percentage (2 % or 5 %) is the discount rate of the net present value (NPV) which was maximized (either as the only objective or as a part of multi-objective utility function). The variable used in DEA was NPV calculated with 3 % discount rate
