Enough space for wind and solar power plants in Germany

Agora Energiewende has an interactive map developed that shows suitable locations for implementing renewable energy projects. In all, more than 10,000 square kilometers will have to be used for this.

Climate Neutrality in Berlin recommends that 2% of the land in Germany be used for wind energy production. That is about 7150 km2 Or half the area of ​​Schleswig-Holstein. So far it is only 0.9%. So it must be more than doubled in order to achieve the energy transmission. It is difficult to understand because the wind generator can be seen almost everywhere in the open country. Agora Energiewende, a Berlin think-tank that has set itself the task of seeking majority-capable compromises in restructuring the electricity sector within the energy transition, says it too will work without any problems. In addition, a second goal can be achieved: to install solar systems in open space on approximately 1% of the area of ​​Germany. And without harming the animal world and without unreasonable burdens on humans.

It is said that wind energy is booming, especially in the north

The plan for the area comes from the Reiner Lemoine Institute, an independent, not-for-profit research institute based in Berlin that deals with scientific issues related to the topic of renewable energies. It is stored in a place where everyone can access interactive cardNS. Above all, the traditional wind countries of Schleswig-Holstein, Lower Saxony, Mecklenburg-West Pomerania and Brandenburg will still have enough space for new wind generators, but also in Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia and North North Rhine-Westphalia. Thuringia, Bavaria and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern can still make huge contributions to solar energy production.
