Una dimensione "insulare" per l'Energia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

[automatically translated] This paper addresses the issue of energy in the insular context, nodal and for the many various kinds of implications, both for the recognition of the specificity of insularity in relation to the energy problem. The latter is part of the debate, yes technological - for exhaustion of fossil fuels, for EU directives on the use of renewables for climate change, associated with the high rate of CO2 emissions into the environment - but , following a logical reasoning about cornered and documented connections between urban environment and energy consumption, it is also part of the urban debate for the support that the discipline can offer with their instruments. About 3.5% of European citizens live in the Islands (from Eurostat 2011), a percentage that grows significantly, during the tourist season, when they also increase the pressures on the ecosystem, on the transport system, energy supply and water demand system. And 'known also that many European islands suffer from structural disadvantages due to a reduction in the population, especially the exodus of young people looking for work. In order to get out of an inevitable marginalization which could relegate a fragile ecosystem and weak local economies, the European island communities must take action in the fight to energy consumption and climate change. With this in mind must be sighted the Pact of Islands initiative and its implementation tool, the Plan for Sustainable Energy Islands Action. A speech that, of course, also affects Italy. when they also increase the pressures on the ecosystem, on the transport system, energy supply and water demand system.
