Publication on Renewable Energy and Ecosystem Services

  • How do Forest Biomass, Agricultural Biomass, Hydropower, Wind Energy, Photovoltaic and Geothermal Energy impact Ecosystem Services?
  • Which importance do the specific energy sources actually have in the Alpine Area?
  • Which are the main impact dimensions of each energy source and on which factors do they depend upon?
  • Do scientific guidelines on environmental impacts address Ecosystem Services impacts related to expanding Renewable Energy?

These and other questions are addressed by a review article on renewable energy and ecosystem services in the Alpine area. Based on a cooperation between seven partners we plan to publish our results this autumn.
