Sustainable Land Use and Renewable Energy


Semester One

Module Leader: Dr Bobby Macaulay

This module provides an overview of land use and renewable energy concepts and activities which relate to sustainable development in rural and mountain communities. Module material focuses on opportunities for improving the sustainability of ‘traditional’ rural land uses and new opportunities for renewable energy generation and distribution.

Specific reference is made to recent developments in land reform and community ownership, as well as debates around the role of land use, renewable energy and rural communities in enacting a ‘Just Transition’ to a net-zero society.
