A Conceptual Framework to Design Green Infrastructure: Ecosystem Services as an Opportunity for Creating Shared Value in Ground Photovoltaic Systems
A conceptual framework that looks at photovoltaic systems in synergy with ecosystem services to connect business success with social and ecological progress based on the operative concept of multifunctional land use is presented.
Agrivoltaic Systems Design and Assessment: A Critical Review, and a Descriptive Model towards a Sustainable Landscape Vision (Three-Dimensional Agrivoltaic Patterns)
This study reviews and analyzes the technological and spatial design options that have become available to date implementing a rigorous, comprehensive analysis based on the most updated knowledge in the field, and proposes a thorough methodology based on design and performance parameters that enable us to define the main attributes of the system from a trans-disciplinary perspective.

Land Use Conflicts between Agriculture and Energy Production. Systems Approaches to Allocate Potentials for Bioenergy and Agrophotovoltaics
The developments towards a bio-based economy and a renewable energy-based power supply require thorough assessments of feedstocks and frameworks. In the past, political targets for increasing shares


Spatial trade-offs between wind power production and bird collision avoidance in agricultural landscapes.
The expansion of renewable energy production is seen as an appropriate way to mitigate climate change. Renewable energies are not free of negative external effects on humans and the natural
Agrophotovoltaic – Agricultural Production Below Optimized Elevated Photovoltaic Systems.
In the last two decades many states introduced renewable energy policies to support climate change mitigation. For this reason the global photovoltaic (PV) market has grown substantially. In
Food versus Fuel: Toward a New Paradigm—The Need for a Holistic Approach
A key objective of this paper is to provide an assessment of the current and future situation on the “food versus fuel” debate and to contribute to possible alternatives to minimise or avoid future
Whose energy transition is it, anyway? Organisation and ownership of the Energiewende in villages, cities and regions
As one of the most ambitious national energy transition initiatives worldwide, the German Energiewende is attracting a huge amount of attention globally in both policy and research circles. The paper
Local Governments Supporting Local Energy Initiatives: Lessons from the Best Practices of Saerbeck (Germany) and Lochem (The Netherlands)
The social dimension of the transition to a low carbon economy is a key challenge to cities. The establishment of local energy initiatives (LEIs) has recently been attracting attention. It is of
The institutional space of community initiatives for renewable energy: a comparative case study of the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark
BackgroundCommunity initiatives for renewable energy are emerging across Europe but with varying numbers, success rates and strategies. A literature overview identifies structural, strategic and
