Sustainable Solutions for Planetary Health: ERN-Environmental Engagements - talks: Stephanie Nitsch, 17.00-18.30

For the first time in the history of humankind the human-induced socio-ecological crises are approaching or crossing planetary boundaries, threatening the very possibilities of survival on Earth. Only rapid and profound changes can steer us to a pathway towards planetary health. In order to make these transitions as safe and as just as possible, certain values and basic principles need to be considered and evidence-based decisions must be made. Thus, to achieve sustainable solutions for planetary health, a plurality of perspectives is required. This is what the “Environmental Engagements: talks”-series hosted by the Environmental Research Network aims at: Giving a platform to researchers from diverse backgrounds conducting cutting-edge environmental research at the University of Vienna, who are ready to engage with a broad audience beyond disciplinary boundaries through highly timely and solution-focused exchanges. Join the conversation!

26.01.2022, 17:00-18:30 Stephanie Nitsch "Wind Power from a Civil Law Perspective"

Über den Vortrag:
In view of an increasing demand for renewable energy, the aim of this talk is to address the challenges that civil law poses to the purchase, construction, and operation of renewable power plants. With a special focus on wind power, a central task is to examine challenges of the law of obligations as well as property law. This analysis is performed through the lens of the various actors involved, such as manufacturers, constructors, operators, and landowners. Which concepts and argumentations are advocated, and do they comply with today’s court practice? In response to this question, new approaches and possible solutions under Austrian civil law shall be introduced and discussed.
