How to assess impact

Monday 19 October 2015

Our Masters students in Sustainable Development and Energy all took part in a workshop on environmental impact assessment and new approaches towards sustainability assessment.

Forthcoming legislation has expanded the activities and scope of impact assessment. They spent the day exploring two contrasting case studies: Guardbridge energy centre and Kenly wind farm. Their findings will inform ongoing post EIA processes for the university.
