2009 (English)Other (Other academic)
This article evaluates the effectiveness of decision-making tools originally designed for environmental issues in an energy planning process in a Swedish municipality. The tested tools include a citizen’s panel, a combination of external scenarios and backcasting, life cycle assessment, and qualitative checklists for environmental assessment. This study concludes that the tools contributed to a broader scope, more comprehensive environmental assessments, and better legitimacy of the energy planning.
