Definition of general recommendations of energy policy from renewable energy sources (wind, solar photovoltaic, biomass) in the Province of Foggia, considering the general territorial future planning at the Province level

CMCC RoleTop

CMCC is involved in the project as a partner in the following WP :

  1. Preliminary analysis for the sustainable development and management from renewable energy sources in the Province of Foggia;
  2. Scientific contribution to recommendations of energy policy for the sustainable development and management from renewable energy sources in shared agreement with local institutions and stakeholders.

Expected resultsTop

Assessment of the overall environmental impact – considering both benefits from avoided emissions and negative potential trade-offs in land use – of the current and future power production from wind and photovoltaic energy. Such an assessment will be then presented and used in the sharing process towards the energy planning at the Province level.

  • Environmental assessment of the current energy mix;
  • Quantification of carbon dioxide emissions from power production at the Province level and comparison with the regional and national level;
  • Current and future assessment of overall environmental impact of wind and photovoltaic power plants;
  • Contribution to define both expected and target scenarios;
  • Contribution to determine main conclusions of environmental-energy policy at Province level
