Farris, Silvia (2018) Energie rinnovabili: paesaggio, territorio e collettività locali. Doctoral Thesis.
Securing a sustainable and reliable energy supply is one of the main topics of the environmental issues we are facing today. Energy transition to more sustainable energy systems is supposed to resolve not only the decreasing availability of fossil fuels, but also the environmental and social issues the actual energy systems entail. Renewable energy systems deal not only with economical and technical issues, but also spatial issues, which comes as implications of the low energy efficiency obtainable from the main renewable sources, that require large areas of installation. The blueprinting and implementation of sustainable patterns of life cannot overlook the territoriality they entail, and the echoes on local systems, which are tangible and quantifiable on the one hand, and intangible and elusive on the other hand. The research is aimed to understand the landscape evolution caused by the forthcoming renewable energy systems. Furthermore, consequent topic is understand how a productive energy landscape can be translated in a sustainable landscape, including the environmental and social issues here implied. Therefore, sustainable energy systems rely on a substantial local involvement, resulting in community-owned and managed energy systems, as a result of both, grassroot actions and mainstream energy policy.
