Regarding the current necessity to reduce energy consumption, and to redefine energy supply systems, the territorial and urban planning
, opens up interesting new, development scenarios in GIS based on multi criteria analysis, with particular reference to the modelling and innovative implementation phase. The accurate knowledge of the territory with all its potential makes it possible to start specific and effective interventions to exploit the most part of its characteristics.
The present paper proposes a first analysis and an interpretative model capable of integrating into the municipal energy planning process the opportunities offered in terms of management and project aid, from the relational geodatabase.
Such an experimental application of a support decision GIS based on multi criteria analysis would allow greater efficiency in the organization and management of spatial information (in relation to energy issues), if enhanced and used by the governmental organism.
