How can we design a future environmentally compatible power supply using renewable energies? A detailed examination of emerging technologies in the energy sector from a nature conservation viewpoint aims to demonstrate new directions for the future.

This project measures the future viability of renewable energies mainly via the benchmark of environmental compatibility. The project team will examine future technologies in the energy sector in detail and work out the need for optimisation and any potential improvements from the viewpoint of nature conservation, from both a technical and spatial angle.

In addition, scenarios will be used to define current areas for action. Part of the project involves producing a tool that will be able to define the trade-off between the ecosystem and its use for energy generation. This tool will be designed in such a way that the input data can be adapted for calculating different scenarios, so that the methodology will last beyond the project term.

In the first working step the basis for the scenario will be laid. This requires an analysis and evaluation of the status quo: what are the conflicts between nature conservation and renewable energies? In addition, the standards for evaluating the environmental compatibility of energy measures will be defined. The technologies anticipated for 2050 will be analysed in terms of these standards.

The second step will describe the scenario. The method will assume the target status, i.e. that in 2050 an environmentally compatible power supply using 100% renewable energies will be achieved. Working on this assumption, the current need for action will be derived by looking backwards. In contrast to other scenario methods that follow a continuation of present-day trends in the form of forecasts, this method (backcasting) enables the identification of the actual development paths that are necessary or possible in order to reach the intended goal.

The third step will demonstrate the current need for action, derived from an analysis of the scenario.
