The Multifunctional Environmental Energy Tower : Carbon Footprint and Land Use Analysis of an Integrated Renewable Energy Plant

  title={The Multifunctional Environmental Energy Tower : Carbon Footprint and Land Use Analysis of an Integrated Renewable Energy Plant},
  author={Emanuele Bonamente and Lara Pelliccia and Maria Cleofe Merico and Sara Rinaldi and Alessandro Petrozzi},
The Multifunctional Environmental Energy Tower (MEET) is a single, vertical, stand-alone renewable energy plant designed to decrease the primary energy consumption from fossil fuels, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, to maximize the energy production from renewable sources available in place and to minimize land use. A feasibility case study was performed for the city of Rome, Italy. Several technologies are exploited and integrated in a single system, including a photovoltaic plant, a… CONTINUE READING
