The process proposed in this chapter aims to analyse renewable energy policies from the perspective of cross-sectoral trade-offs and synergies, with the aim of enhancing renewable energy sustainability. Both existing and new policies can be analysed through this process, using the Sustainability Assessment Matrix proposed for this purpose. This process aims to identify, assess and classify synergies and trade-offs between the renewable energy policy being examined and the policies of other nexus sectors. Crucially, it identifies gaps and barriers that exist both in the renewable energy policy under analysis and the policies of involved nexus sectors. With adjustments, the proposed method could be replicated in other contexts (e.g. water supply) to gather opinions from involved public and private stakeholders, during either the consultation process for a new policy measure or the amendment of an existing policy measure.
