From the action plan for Renewable Energy Sources to the development strategies of the industrial areas in Europe

Objective



THE PROPOSAL IS INTENDED TO VERIFY THE FEASIBILITY OF THE PENETRATION OF RENEWABLE ENERGIES IN FIVE EUROPEAN METROPOLITAN AREAS (BARCELONA, DUISBURG, GLASGOW, GRAND LYON, TURIN) WITH PECULIAR AND CRITICAL CONDITIONS, SUCH AS: LARGE INDUSTRIAL INFRASTRUCTURE TO BE STRONGLY RECONVERTED IN THE FUTURE, INCREASING UNENPLOYMENT OR NEED FOR A MAJOR CHANGE IN LABOUR PERSPECTIVES AND HIGH POLLUTION LEVELS AND ENVIRONMENTAL VULNERABILITY. A SPECIAL ATTENTION IS GIVEN IN CREATING REPLICABLE PROCEDURE TO OTHER EUROPEAN AND THIRD COUNTRIES (SAINT PETERSBURG WILL ASSIST THE PROJECT IN A FOLLOWER MODE).
THE DEFINED GOAL, AS DECLAPED IN THE ACTION PLAN FOR RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCES (DECLARATION OF MADRID), IS THE SUBSTITUTION OF THE 15% OF THE REAL PRIMARY ENERGY CONSUMPTION BY RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCES, SHOWING, AT THE SAME TIME THE JOB CREATION POTENTIAL OF RE.
THE PROJECT CONSIST OF FOUR PHASES: THE FIRST WILL ASSESS THE RESOURCES ON WHICH THE FUTURE OF THE FIVE CITIES' ECONOMY LIES, IN ORDER TO TRANSFORM THE RE IMPLEMENTATION STRATEGY INTO LOCAL DEVELOPMENT. ALSO THE PRINCIPAL KNOWLEDGE RESOURCES AND CORE-COMPETENCIES OF THE CITIES WILL BE DEFINED. THE SECOND PHASE WILL DEFINE AN OPERATIONAL SCHEME FOR THE FIVE CITIES, SETTING UP LOCAL RESPONSIBILITIES AND COMPETENCIES, ASSESSING THE EFFICIENCY OF THE ENERGY CONSERVATION AND SUBSTITUTION PROGRAMS IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE NECESSARY INVESTMENTS FOR TECHNOLOGY AND INFORMATION, DOCUMENTING THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY, THE REFERENCE TECHNOLOGIES AND THE FIELD OF APPLICATION. JOB CREATION AND NEW EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES WILL BE EVALUATED. THE THIRD PHASE WILL DEVELOP A COMMUNITY PLANNING IN THE FIVE CITIES. THE CASE STUDIES SELECTED FOR THE COMMUNITY PLANNING ACTIVITY CAN REPRESENT THE FIRST ACTIONS TO BE UNDERTAKEN BY THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT OR MUNICIPALITY, TO STRENGHTEN THE FEASIBILITY OF THE GENERAL PLANNING.
THE LAST PHASE WILL CREATE FIVE FORUMS FOR THE PUBLIC DIALOGUE, ONE FOR EACH CITY OF THE PROJECT, AND A REPLICABLE PROCEDURE FOR THE EVALUATION OF THE APPLICABILITY OF A RE STRATEGY IN EUROPEAN INDUSTRIAL AREAS WILL BE SET UP.
