Wind turbine in agrarian landscape

EEMonReport

A web-based reporting format was developed which is able to inform about the progress made in a nature conservation-compatible expansion of renewable energies in the German electricity sector and…

Floating PV – An investigation concept for the nature conservation impacts

PV systems on artificial and heavily modified water bodies also serve to implement the EEG (§ 36 WHG). The first systems have gone into operation on artificial stillwaters, although the nature…

Peatland PV - potential areas and nature conservation impacts

The construction of solar plants on rewetted peatland soils is economically stimulated by the amendment of the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG). So far, however, there is a lack of practical…

Preventative measures for underground cable projects

Laying high-voltage underground cables (for example HVDC – high-voltage direct current transmission) requires a range of prevention and mitigation measures. The research project develops practical…

RE scenarios from a nature conservation viewpoint

The project aims to find a balance between the economic and technical requirements of future renewable energy sites and the most environmentally compatible development of them. The alternative…

Repowering of wind turbines

A significant increase in the repowering of wind turbines is expected in the near future, as the period of guaranteed feed-in renumeration for many existing wind turbines will expire. From a nature…
