The Fourth Careggi Seminar will take place the 6th of November 2012 in Florence hosted by the Presidency of the Tuscany Region on the theme "Renewable Energy and Landscape".

 

The venue is Cenacolo di Sant' Apolonnia, via San Gallo 25, Florence

 

This occasion, as the previous Careggi Seminars, wants to offer the opportunity to develop among experts and research centres of the Universities that are part of UNISCAPE, the necessary reflections on contemporary issues at a European level.

 

Presentation by the coordinators Professor Annalisa Calcagno Maniglio (University of Genova) and Anna Laura Palazzo (University of Roma Tre):

 

The Seminar's aim is to investigate and reflect in depth- with specific interventions, on the positive and negative effects and impacts that can be caused by the introduction in the landscape of renewable energy plants. The European Union in the last years has adopted policies for increasing the amount of energy produced with renewable sources also by introducing research incentives related to the technology and installation of the plants. We are speaking of complex
and delicate interventions that highlight issues regarding the balance between landscape compatibility, environmental sustainability, social and economic acceptability, and stress also the necessity to verify the relation cost-benefits of the solutions. In the morning session we will give space to the various experiences regarding specific issues of sustainability and compatibility of renewable sources (mainly wind, solar, photovoltaic and biomass) with the pre existent goods and resources of the contexts in which they are implemented.
In the afternoon, there will be presentations of some experiences that are being developed by the administrations of various states, regions and provinces in order to respect the aims of saving energy and containing greenhouse emissions. The presentations will focus on: the ways of approaching the proposed targets at an institutional level (quota of energy production from renewable sources, energy plans, alternative energy scenarios for sources and/or locations); the impact assessment carried out during the whole process and the related mitigation measures such as guidelines, action plans, regulatory tools; the role of public participation in the policy making according to the European Landscape Convention; some major “side effects” such as: the role of incentive bonus and benefits; the promotion of “technological” economies locally based; the opening to “extra-local” actors; the competition between land uses due to the reduction of agricultural land; the management of the life cycle of the plants, especially the dismantling costs, etc.
