Because of the continuous threat of a global energy crisis and the need to curb greenhouse gas emissions, renewable energy option not from fossil fuels is a central node of the strategy for sustainable development for all the Alpine and pre-Alpine wooded areas.
The natural forest endowment is the primary resource and locally may:
a) be decisive to give an economic contribution, through proper forest management, innovative and environmentally friendly business initiatives in the energy sector;
b) contribute to the resilience and increase in the value of ecosystem services of soil-forest system, reducing, at the same time, natural hazards;
c) improve the “value chain” of the wood industry.
The project aims to be a first study on the supply chain forest-wood-energy, based on certain physical environmental data, from which get proposals for successive detailed approximations and durable scenarios and solutions for the integrated and full use of the renewable energy sources of territories with a high degree of abandonment and collapse of the slopes.
The project “BES-Lario” is a study that is to be understood as a “pilot project”, based on the preservation of forests’ eco-systemic functions and on sustainable management of the land in the south-western branch of Lake Como.
The specific objectives of the project are:
