Dilemmas in SEA Application: The DK Energy SectorIvar Lyhne - lyhne@plan.aau.dk.
Based on three years of collaborative research, this paper outlines dilemmas in the application of SEA in the strategic development of the Danish energy sector. The dilemmas are based on concrete examples from practice in the implementation of SEA in the sector, and they concern, e.g., strategic choices in transmission network development and ministerial choices on location of energy production units. The paper outlines the roots of the dilemmas as well as their implications for timing and content of SEA. The verdict is that we (in the Danish energy sector) are starting to get it right. Lessons for SEA implementation in similar contexts are proposed.
