Landscape and sustainable energy transition: the legal protection of landscape(s) through the prism of the energy transition

This research project focusing on the articulation of energy and landscape interests aims to provide a legal reflection on the landscape integration into the renewable energy-related policies. How does the legal framework deal with the landscape concept in the context of the energy transition? To what extent is the treatment of different interests (landscape, biodiversity, climate changes, patrimony, private property, etc.) carried out? To answer these and further questions, the research consortium will highlight the existing conflicting issues between landscapes and renewable energy in order to propose conciliatory instruments, mechanisms and principles. The project is supported by Eucor – The European Campus in the “Research and Innovation” category of the Seed Money scheme.
