Hypothesis: Changes in energy sector requires more energy efficiency and causes land use changes

Peak oil and the phase-out of nuclear energy in Germany creates significant changes on the energy market → requires increasing energy efficiency and an increasing share of re-newable energies → industries, economic sectors and espe-cially transport with high energy consumption will come un-der pressure → on the other hand, regions with a high po-tential for renewable energy can expect increased incomes under the precondition of efficient solutions for production, storage and transport of energy to markets and relocation of energy-intensive activities to these areas → this will trigger land use changes and increasing pressure on alpine land re-sources
