Abstract (D3.S1)

A comprehensive report will describe in detail the methodology and process that led to the choice of preferred layout and placement scenario. The process was based on the "avoid-reduce-compensate" methodology that is anchored in French law and widely implemented in Switzerland.

Three factors drive the process of developing a suitable layout and placement scenario, and the boundary conditions that should be respected will be explained in the report: 1) achieving scientific excellence to attract a large user community over long time periods, 2) achieving societal acceptability and territorial compatibility and 3) controlling project risks and costs.

The report will compile the various constraints and opportunities that have been identified throughout the initial FCC exploratory studies and their evolution since then. They include, but are not limited to geological features, subsurface and surface water, topography, protected and urbanised zones, planned projects and projects under construction, transport infrastructures (road, rail), wastelands, industrial infrastructures, resources (electricity, water, services), sensitive zones and the constraints and opportunities recorded in regional development plans on the 2035 time horizon. The report will include a high-level assessment of very diverse placement hypotheses such as trans-Jura and lake variants and will summarise the early ideas discussed between 2013 and 2016, which led to the development of a structured, iterative and formal scenario development process in cooperation with competent bodies in both Host States and domain experts urban planning, natural environment, transport, technical and natural resources.
