"More areas for wind energy" - contents of the expert discussion now online

About 300 interested people had attended the digital BfN - expert discussion "More areas for wind energy" on 22 November 2021, which was opened by President Sabine Riewenherm.

Prof. Dr Christina von Haaren (Leibniz University of Hanover), Christoph Heinrich from WWF Germany, Prof. Dr Wolfgang Köck (Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ), Thorsten Müller (Stiftung Umweltenergierecht) and Dr Gerd Rosenkranz (Agora Energiewende Foundation) discussed where the areas required for the expansion of wind energy use should be located, how nature conservation concerns can be adequately taken into account at an early stage, and what role the federal government should play. Among the topics discussed were findings from research projects commissioned by the BfN, which show how a conservation-oriented distribution of the amount of land needed for the expansion of wind energy use can be carried out throughout Germany.

The federal government's coalition agreement stipulates that the federal government will develop legal instruments to ensure that an average of 2 percent of the state's land is made available for wind energy use. The discussion about the spatial distribution of these areas has thus become more topical.
