The SIMEA (Social Impact Method of Energy Analysis) and SENECA (Social and ENErgetic Change Analysis) are new methodologies to evaluate social impact, considering as environment not only the natural world, but also the economy structure, social organisation end cultural and historical aspects of a site. The aim of SIMEA is to consider in integrated way most of the possible effects on the environment (considering the definition of enlarged environment: nature, economy etc.) of the energy system and evaluate the social consequences on site where the energy system is installed of this effects as social impact. The SENECA method aims at evaluating the social change coming out from different energy choices within energy development projects in small rural communities. Through this method is possible to describe both an implemented and an implementing project using some indicators and a correlation, giving justification of the appropriate use of the chosen function. Aiming at the common scope of Social impact evaluation of energy systems, SIMEA and SENECA will use parameters that are chosen in different ways. In both cases the site is analysed from a social point of view starting from energetic changes. The surrounding areas are considered in different ways. For SIMEA it is only considered as parameter for the comparison to evaluate the local situation. SENECA method is based on a gravitational model, so that the surrounding areas are the gravitational field itself, and the migration flux, or the repulsive force, are based also on it.
