The exploitation of underground energy resources as well as the use and expansion of hydropower, are, like all energy technologies, not risk free. How these risks potentially impact our society, is, of course, dependent on the vulnerabilities of our buildings, our infrastructure, and our communities. Moving towards a safe and more resilient energy sector requires tools for hazard, risk and vulnerability assessment that are closely integrated with societal risk perception, related communication and public engagement strategies, because perceived risk actually can, and does impact energy source design and risk mitigation strategies. A comprehensive risk governance framework, where hazard, risk and vulnerability assessment, risk perception and risk communication are integrated, is necessary. This project aims to develop such risk governance framework by integrating a set of various risk assessments (seismic hazards, risks related to geothermal energy, risk related to hydro-energy, accidental risks), vulnerability analysis, and related risk perceptions in a dynamic way to account for developments that affect buildings, infrastructure systems and energy sources over their lifetime. This framework will enable design and deployment of a comprehensive risk communication strategy for the development of deep geothermal and new hydropower energy sources.
