B3n SEA practice in energy management

Ross Marshall, Environment Agency, UK
Peter Leonard, Hydro Quebec, Canada

Key issues to be addressed

Position Paper:

Sustainable energy development is increasingly recognized as a key component of the sustainable development agenda. How has and could Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) contribute to Sustainable Energy development? To what extent are SEA approaches, processes and its tools useful—or have been useful in practice to date—to improve the decision making process of the energy sector at the policy, program and planning level? The session—based on its initial position paper—will review such questions based on recent practices and case study examples of SEA applications to the energy sector; namely, how SEA has been used to subsequently launch more sustainable energy projects

The session(s) will explore the role SEA is now playing in public and industrial strategic planning for energy management, and papers are particularly welcomed on how SEA can contribute to the increasing the effectiveness of energy efficiency policies, programs and plans

As climate change is one of the most significant and complex cumulative effects currently influencing SEA, the session will provide a particular focus on assessing climate change through SEA. Papers outlining practitioner experience on the setting and inclusion of SEA objectives and indicators for climate change are particularly encouraged
