Reconciling Renewable Energy Production and Nature in the Alps

The growing demand for renewable energy (RE) will increase the pressure on the Alpine environment. It will strongly impact land use patterns, ecological connectivity and biodiversity. Both the demand for renewable energy and the need for the conservation of biodiversity, soil, and connectivity transcend national borders. A transnational dialogue to address multiple environmental objectives, interdependences and trade-offs between various ecosystem services, and conflicting priorities, is urgently needed.

The recharge.green projects' core objective is to develop tools and an integrated strategy for renewable energy production, sustainable land use systems as well as the conservation of biodiversity and soil across the Alpine region, so as to support the implementation of relevant EU Directives. It valorizes Alpine biodiversity, land use patterns and related ecosystem services, and model the carrying capacity of the Alpine ecosystems with respect to all aspects of RE production and consumption. One of the aims is to produce scenarios to highlight the potential of renewable energies in the Alps as well as presenting the possible conflicts between nature and humans arising from the use of renewable resources.
