Energy policy and models are too focused on decarbonisation. They leave aside other environmental impacts that must be considered to ensure sustainable energy transition pathways, such as impacts on biodiversity, raw material requirements or water and land use. In the LIVEN project we develop and adapt the environmental assessment tool ENBIOS to overcome these limitations of current energy system models.
Our objective is to create an environmental assessment tool capable of improving decision-making when it comes to choosing between different energy policies in a specific geographical location.
