AbstractThis paper examines an ontological approach to integrating knowledge to support interdisciplinary studies in energy and ecology in terms of quality of life assessment. These studies involve the integration of environmental and social components. The environmental component is determined by natural and climatic conditions and the state of elements of the natural environment of a particular territory. The social component implies meeting the electricity and heat demand of the population, which is necessary for comfortable living. Quality-of-life metrics are considered as a way to assess the positive and negative impacts of the energy facilities and population on the natural environment to compare these impacts. We present ontologies detailing basic concepts of the subject area of research into the impact of energy facilities and quality of life and reflecting their integration into a single ontological space of knowledge. The ontological approach provides a visual representation and integration of knowledge from different subject areas.
