Applying for approval to modify an installation for the generation of electricity from renewable energies (repowering)

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Do you operate an installation that requires approval under immission control legislation, for which you already have approval under immission control legislation, and are you planning to carry out repowering measures on this installation?

Repowering measures serve to modernize an installation for the purpose of generating electricity from renewable energies.

This repowering measure can have adverse effects in relation to the current state of the installation. If these are significant for the approval requirements of the installation requiring approval, a modification permit is required.

Therefore, corresponding changes to installations requiring approval must be reviewed by the immission control authority. To do this, you must submit an application for a modification permit and submit all the documents required for the assessment. The application can be made in writing or electronically.
