Seminar and workshop: Energy Landscapes - integrating multiple criteria for decision making

Renewable energy and landscapes - towards integrated energy-environment sustainability assessment

The International Scientific Workshop “Energy landscapes - integrating multiple criteria for planning and decision making” will take place at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden, August 23-24, 2012. It will embrace a core case study, relevant for the entire EU and Europe; the ongoing implementation of the EU Renewable Energy Directive (EU Directive 2009/28/EC) adopted in 2009, implying rapid changes in land use with increasingly competing land use interests and associated potential environmental impacts and landscape changes. For steering these changes in a sustainable direction, methods and tools for planning, environmental impact assessment and integrated sustainability assessment need to be developed which can take into account disparate stakeholder perspectives and interests along with scientific knowledge on energy technology and environmental responses. For this purpose, landscape assessment tools and multiple criteria decision aid has been developed. By gathering leading scientists around energy landscapes, these tools will be further developed and adapted to emerging energy landscapes, allowing for multiple criteria decision analysis and multiple use landscape management.
