Planning task F: Decision making. Realization of the preferred alternative

The last step in a local energy planning process is to decide whether the project should be realised or not. With licences granted and a sound project economy and risk in the project, a decision will lead to the implementation phase of the project.

This phase involves detailed design, contracting, construction work, acquisitions, quality assurance and similar. In rare cases the findings in the implementation phase might lead to modification of the project as indicated in the flowchart.

As an example, if archaeological discoveries are made during excavation works, this might have project effects.
