Both the UK and Germany have ambitious plans for the expansion of wind energy generation in their territorial and marine jurisdictions. Associated plans and programmes are subject to the terms of the European Directive, /42/EC ‘on the assessment of the effects of certain plans and programmes on the environment’ (i.e. the SEA Directive). Fig. 1 shows the current status Cited by: Integrating Strategic Environmental Assessment into Power Planning This book is the first in a three-volume series of studies arising from the project Ensuring Sustainability of the Greater Mekong Subregion Regional Power Development. Environmental assessment (EA) is the assessment of the environmental consequences (positive negative) of a plan, policy, program, or actual projects prior to the decision to move forward with the proposed action. In this context, the term "environmental impact assessment" (EIA) is usually used when applied to actual projects by individuals or companies and the term "strategic . Identifying Sustainability Indicators of Strategic Environmental Assessment for Power Planning This book is the second in a three-volume series of studies arising from the project Ensuring Sustainability of the Greater Mekong Subregion Regional Power Development. The project aimed to assess the impacts of alternative.

Overview. An environmental impact assessment (EIA) is an assessment of the possible impact (positive or negative) that a proposed project may have on the environment, considering natural, social and economic aspects. The purpose of the assessment is to ensure that decision makers consider the ensuing environmental impacts to decide whether to proceed with the project. Wind power Energy received from the movement of the wind across the earth Disclaimer Legislation requires, Environmental Assessment Practitioners (EAPs) to take into account any guidelines published in terms of S24J of the Act applicable to the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process or activity which is the subject of the Size: 1MB. The Wind Energy Technologies Office (WETO) works to understand and mitigate barriers to wind power deployment by conducting research and development activities aimed at addressing siting and environmental issues. When properly sited, wind projects provide a net environmental benefit to the communities in which they operate and to the nation overall. A number of key messages have emerged from the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) of hydropower in Viet Nam. These are: • SEA provides a powerful tool for the analysis of the social and environmental impacts of hydropower development and can be fully integrated into the overall strategic planning.

A practical, authoritative guide to the assessment of wind resources for utility-scale wind projects―authored by a team of experts from a leading renewable energy consultancy. The successful development of wind energy projects depends on an accurate assessment of where, how often, and how strongly the wind blows/5(5).   Final reports for research projects commissioned as part of the UK Offshore Energy Strategic Environmental Assessment programme.
