The COST Action “Renewable energy and landscape quality ” (RELY) - TU1401 started in October 2014 with the support of 34 European countries. Epoka University, represented by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Sokol DERVISHI, the Head of the Department of Architecture joined this Action in April 2016, as the coordinator of Albania, a COST Near Neighboring Country.
The main aim of the Action is to investigate the inter-relationship between renewable energy production and landscape quality, and the role of public participation for the acceptance of renewable energy systems. The Action will develop a better understanding of how landscape protection and management, and renewable energy deployment can be reconciled to contribute socio-environmentally to the sustainable transformation of energy systems.
The project will end in October 2018.
