BfN-Panel: „Solar energy: paths to a nature-friendly built-up",  Berlin, 26. October 2022 – in attendance and online

Following the presentation, a high-ranking panel discussed criteria for the environmentally compatible expansion of solar energy and the opportunities that this can offer for nature conservation.

The participants included state offices, regional planning and planning offices, municipalities, photovoltaic project developers, law firms as well as financial institutions and the scientific community, be it colleges, universities or research institutions.
