BEA-APP final conference “Renewable energy and spatial planning: challenges and future perspectives”

29 January – 30 January 2019
Riga, Latvia



The final conference “Renewable energy and spatial planning: challenges and future perspectives” will take place in the Hotel Avalon, Riga on the 29 January, followed by a guided study visit to the energy supplier FORTUM's facilities in Jelgava on the 30 January 2019. Participation is free of charge. 

The Baltic Energy Areas – A Planning Perspective (BEA-APP) project brings together two perspectives: spatial planning as well as regional energy policy. The project has focused on the capacity building of regional actors by:

  • providing adjusted spatial planning instruments targeting renewable energy development;
  • developing innovative stakeholder involvement methods and financing systems to increase social acceptance through local ownership;
  • applying the developed measures to pilot cases, studying the features of suitable renewable energy production sites and, thereby, setting the scene for concrete projects.   

We invite you to participate in the BEA-APP final conference to learn about its main outcomes and to network with experts from other projects and initiatives dealing with renewable energy and spatial planning.
