Valuation of ecosystem services for implementing innovative clean technology

Warianty tytułu
Języki publikacji
Sustainable development of high nature value areas promotes the use of resources and services that rely on the unique assets of a particular ecosystem without undermining its integrity. Implementing innovative technologies, especially in the field of renewable energy sources, supports this process and helps to preserve environmentally valuable areas such as semi-natural grasslands. This study employs the ecosystem services valuation method to assess the environmental impacts of implementation of innovative IFBB technology in the Notec River Valley of western Poland as a part of a proposed implementation potential analysis framework. Six different categories of ecosystem services were analysed. Results show that implementing IFBB technology has a positive impact on the local ecosystem, generates additional value for potential investors, and thus could affect the perception of a renewable energy generation technology as being viable to implement.
