Topping, (Editors), "Proceedings of the Fifteenth International Conference on Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering Computing", Civil-Comp Press, Stirlingshire, UK, Paper 217, 2015. doi:10.4203/ccp.108.217
Keywords: landscapes, energy systems, eco-efficiency, multidimensional analysis, tools and methodologies - eco-compatibility.
The work, presented in this paper, focuses on managing the controversial relationship between energy systems and landscapes with the general aim of subverting and transforming apparent conflicts in synergies, in order to overcome a sectorial and segmented approach barely based on energy performances. Accordingly this paper provides an informative elaboration method that describes a multi-dimensional analysis tool capable of evaluating, simultaneously, the environmental, economic and social aspects of an energy system. The goal is to develop a methodology and to identify acceptability criteria for the design of energy systems in relationship with their contexts. Moreover the paper describes the methodology rules to which the data relate to, based on multidimensional analysis criteria according to literature. Finally the paper discloses how the application of the multidimensional analysis tool to a project under development can lead to its possible implementation, as a result of the adoption of this systemic approach, producing a wider range of benefits and advantages.
